Name

tfoot — A table footer consisting of one or more rows in an HTML table

Synopsis

tfoot (db.html.tfoot) ::= tr+

Attribute synopsis

Attributes:

  • char

  • charoff (enumeration) = xsd:integer | xsd:string (Pattern: “[0–9]+%”)

In our experience, relatively few formatters handle footer rows correctly.
