Summary
Improve support for very long tables
Type
Change
Raised by
John Rankin
Date opened
Friday, 7 October 2005
Description
If a table is longer than one physical page, the trailing content is lost into the page footer.
Importance
3
Proposed solution
Split long tables across multiple pages, with a running header if appropriate. At the moment, there appears to be no way to designate a table header row in wiki markup. It seems reasonable to treat a starting row of <th> cells as a heading row.
Require at least 2 rows on a page, if possible. Investigate use of a class=long attribute so authors can explicitly tag long tables.
Urgency
3
Status
Closed
Resolution
This is partly resolved: advanced tables will split actoss pages. Currently, simple tables of class=long will split across pages, including an optional running header. There were some cosmetic issues with justification, hyphenation and column widths, but these have been resolved. If the first row is all headings (or headings and empty cells), this becomes a running header. A table running footer at the end of each page says Continued on next page.
