XML and Table layout for merged rows

Discussion in 'XML' started by =?iso-8859-1?q?Jean-Fran=E7ois_Michaud?=, Feb 14, 2006.

  1. I don't really know where to post this. Is there a table layout
    algorithm forum?

    We are trying to implement row merging capabilities in an application
    (VEX). We fetch the information in an XML file (the table structure is
    already defined in the DTD) in but since everything is row based in the
    XML, we can not simply expand a cell's height because it augments the
    height of ALL cells in the corresponding row.

    How is this traditionally dealt with in say a browser rendering html
    tables which have merged rows/cols (intersecting rows and column logic
    is not needed)?

    Regards
    Jean-Francois Michaud

  2. Uhm... This sounds like a rendering (presentation) question, not an XML
    (data representation) question.
