Implied column/row separator visible

These controls determine the implied column separator and implied row separator settings for your table. The states set in these controls are only used when a table contains no other indication of how to render row or column separators for a particular cell. The settings declared here affect internal separators only, and have no effect on the table frame.

You can also use the <table-properties colsep="VALUE" rowsep="VALUE"/> directive to override or assign the states of the implied table column and table row separator.

Rendering internal rules

Within CALS tables, the rendering of internal table column and row separators is determined by the value of the colsep and rowsep attributes associated with each table cell. The state of the implied column separator is used when processing vertical rules that appear between table cells. The state of the implied row separator is used when processing horizontal rules that appear below a table cell. By default, these controls will be checked when you declare a CALS table style for tag mapping.

Within HTML tables, the rendering of internal table rules is primarily controlled by the table rules attribute. The state of the implied column separator is used when processing vertical rules that appear between table cells, or between table column groups. The state of the implied row separator is used when processing horizontal rules that appear below cells or between table row groups. By default, these controls will be unchecked when you declare an HTML table style for a tag mapping.

Please refer to the Limitations - HTML table processing section of the User Guide for a description of how TopLeaf processes internal rules within HTML tables.
