entrytbl element allows for a single level
of nesting within CALS tables.
An entry table may occur in a row instead of an
entrytbl has most of the
elements of a table but may not include itself, thus limiting nesting to
a single level.
entrytbl can span horizontally (across
columns), but it cannot span across rows. Whether this is by accident
or by design is unclear, but it has always been that way in
This element is expected to obey the semantics of the CALS Table Model Document Type Definition [calsdtd].
The content of
entrytbl is formatted,
as a table, to fit within the table cell that it
occupies. Horizontal and vertical spanning may allow an
entrytbl to occupy several physical cells in the
table that contains it.
entrytbls occur in a single row,
formatters that support
entrytbl are not required
to ensure that subrows within the various tables are vertically
Many formatters are incapable of supporting ...
