Table Properties (Tables Only)
ePublisher gives you the power to adjust padding, spacing, alignment and layout properties for your content tables. Padding refers to the space between the table cell border and the table cell content. You can change left, top, right, and bottom padding values independently. Padding values must be positive numbers.
Left
Specifies the left padding for the entire table. Set a custom padding value by selecting Custom, entering a value, and selecting the unit of measure. Units of measure you can select include: percentages (%) of the line height, centimeters (cm), em units (em), x-height (ex), inches (in), millimeters (mm), picas (pc), point sizes (pt), and pixels (px).
Top
Specifies the top padding the entire table. Set a custom padding value by selecting Custom, entering a value, and selecting the unit of measure. Units of measure you can select include: percentages (%) of the line height, centimeters (cm), em units (em), x-height (ex), inches (in), millimeters (mm), picas (pc), point sizes (pt), and pixels (px).
Right
Specifies the right padding for the entire table. Set a custom padding value by selecting Custom, entering a value, and selecting the unit of measure. Units of measure you can select include: percentages (%) of the line height, centimeters (cm), em units (em), x-height (ex), inches (in), millimeters (mm), picas (pc), point sizes (pt), and pixels (px).
Bottom
Specifies the bottom padding for the entire table. Set a custom padding value by selecting Custom, entering a value, and selecting the unit of measure. Units of measure you can select include: percentages (%) of the line height, centimeters (cm), em units (em), x-height (ex), inches (in), millimeters (mm), picas (pc), point sizes (pt), and pixels (px).
Border
Specifies the size of the border for a table. Borders are lines that you can draw around any or all of the four sides of a table.This field sets the border for the outer edge of the entire table, not the border of cells within the table. This is an HTML property, so you do not need to specify a unit of measure. If you do not specify a border attribute, ePublisher displays the table without any borders.
Cell spacing
Specifies the amount of space between cells of a table. Use cell spacing to create a transparent space, or increase the distance between table cells. This is an HTML property, so you do not need to specify a unit of measure.
Cell padding
Specifies the amount of space between the cell content and its borders. This is an HTML property, so you do not need to specify a unit of measure.
Border collapse
Specifies whether table borders collapse into a single border or remain detached as with standard HTML. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
Collapse
Collapses borders into a single border.
Separate
Keeps borders detached.
Border spacing
Specifies the distance between the borders of adjacent cells. Units of measure you can select include: percentages (%) of the line height, centimeters (cm), em units (em), x-height (ex), inches (in), millimeters (mm), picas (pc), point sizes (pt), and pixels (px). Border spacing values cannot be negative numbers.
Caption side
Specifies the position of the table caption in relation to the table. The values for this setting are defined as: Top and Bottom.
Empty cells
Specifies whether to display empty table cells or to hide them. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
hide
Indicates no borders are drawn around empty table cells.
show
Indicates borders are drawn around empty cells.
Table layout
Specifies whether the table layout is automatic or fixed. The values for this setting are defined as follows:
 
Value
Description
Auto
Specifies the browser sets the column width of a table by the contents of the table cells. This setting can slow down browser display time because the browser must access all table content before it can determine the final layout.
Fixed
Specifies the browser displays the table layout using settings for table width and the width of columns, not based on the content in the table cells. By setting a fixed table layout, the browser can quickly display the table once it receives the first row of table content.
Horizontal
Specifies the horizontal alignment of the content in a table. The values for this settings are defined as: Left, Center, Right, and Justify.
Vertical
Specifies the vertical alignment of the content in a table. The values for this setting are defined as: Top, Middle, and Bottom.
