html export tip

kerry posted 3 years ago in General
I cant find anyplace that does this so
I did it this way. it works

if you export a table as html
befor you put it in your website do the following

just after the body tag
replace this
<table caption="notes (29 rows)">

with this
<table style="width: 100%;" caption="contacts (29 rows)">

so the table and text will srink and grow with changing computer
screen modes in any size window. but do not
change the number of rows

Is this even valid ? As far as I can se caption is standard tag, not attribute.

BubikolRamios, you are right, Anse has two errors in his HTML header. Even in XHTML Transitional, this:

<meta name="GENERATOR" content="HeidiSQL">

should be:

<meta name="GENERATOR" content="HeidiSQL" />[code]
(added ' /' as tag closer). And of course, the CAPTION tag is not part of the TABLE element, it should read:
[code]<table><caption>Notes (29 rows)</caption>

Kerry CAN use:

<table width="100%"><caption>Notes (29 rows)</caption>

, that is however a DEPRECATED use. As I noted before, the width addition should preferably be used in the line:

table {border-collapse: collapse;}

as in:

table {border-collapse: collapse; width:100%;}

But then you newer know, Kerry possibly copy/pasted the whole TABLE element into an own page, thus losing the original formatting (per STYLE) and was thus forced to imrovise. In that case, Kerry should use:

<table style="width:100%;"><caption>Notes (29 rows)</caption>

instead, as that is the W3C-valid declaration. Otherwise, different browsers may render different results.
