table arrangement rules definition
Refers to the rules that determine how a table is arranged using CSS. Usually a table in CSS is created based on the following rules: 1) A row group’s box surrounds the exact grid cells as the row boxes inside of it. 2) Every row box includes an individual row of grid cells. And every row box in a table makes up the table from top to bottom following the order they occur in the source document. Therefore, there are as many row elements as there are grid rows. 3) A column box surrounds one or multiple columns of grid cells. These column boxes are positioned by one another following the order they occur. The 1st column box is positioned on the left side for languages that are left-to-right (and right for right-to-left languages). 4) The box of a column group surrounds the exact grid cells as the column boxes it surrounds. 5) The document language defines the spanning of cells of rows or columns. 6) The box of a cell may not go past the last row box of a row group or table. A cell needs to be cut short to fit in the row group or table that surrounds it if the table structure causes a cell box to reach past the last row box.
