Mapping CALS table tags

When CALS table processing is enabled, the tag classification for the following elements is always defined as block:

  • table

  • informaltable

  • thead

  • tbody

  • tfoot

  • row

  • entry

The following tags cannot be mapped:

  • tgroup

  • entrytbl

  • colspec

  • rowspec

  • spanspec

Some characteristics of table tag mappings are predefined. For example, a mapping for a table entry tag cannot select a new page type, and it is not possible to scan the content of a table row.
