The current code and generated html is a kludge of table markup and local css styling. I want to clean this up: cleaner code is better maintainable.

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 24 Jun 2007

In the new version the inline css markup has been moved to the head. The markup is still only being generated with custom TABLE{} attributes, otherwise the html markup is used.

-- TWiki:Main/ArthurClemens - 24 Jun 2007

Wouldn't it be great if plain HTML tables would also be enhanced automagically by the CSS used by TablePlugin if it is installed and activated?

  • That would be possible, but sometimes tables are used for markup (yes, bad), for instance in the top bar, and they would be transformed as well. This needs a bit more thought. But you are welcome to brainstorm. -- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 25 Jun 2007
    • Hm, thinking about it, I guess it would be enough if only those HTML <table> elements got enhanced that have a %TABLE{}% entry immediately before them. Thus it would be possible to have best of both worlds. This is feature creep for AFTER 4.2. wink -- TWiki:Main.FranzJosefGigler - 25 Jun 2007

Arthur, was this necessary: Item4300.

-- TWiki:Main.MichaelDaum - 25 Jun 2007

There is a bug, agreed. (solved) But it becomes easier now to code the styling. It has caused me to fix the cellpadding equivalent that was not there before.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 25 Jun 2007

I've updated the unit test.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 25 Jun 2007

... and tests now pass as well.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 27 Jun 2007

This introduced Item4335.
