Chapter 14. Laying Out Tables Within XHT... > Table and Table Cell Alignment

Table and Table Cell Alignment

Horizontal Alignment

The only two attributes ever used within rows include align, which controls the row's spatial alignment, and valign, which determines the vertical placement of all the data within a row. While these attributes are considered legal, they don't offer the kind of control available in attributes related to the table and td elements, so they are rarely used.
