The <row-properties/> command

Declare table row styling properties.

Where allowed

Within a CALS table row mapping or a HTML table tr row mapping.

Range of effect

The current table row.



Specifies the background fill color for the current table row. See “Colors” for a description of how colors are specified.

[Note] Note

Setting a background color of “white” (or “#FFFFFF”) disables any background fill.

[Warning] Warning

This command will have no effect when used:

  • In a header row other than the first. Note that <table-properties header-bgcolor="COLOR"/> is the preferred method for setting header color.

  • In any row containing a vertically spanned cell begun in a previous row.

In these cases you will have to set the color on individual cells to achieve the desired effect.
