Any serious approach would involve user/formatter/admin access models but that ain't gunna happen not nohow. Anyway a start has been made within the confines of our own little virtual paper bag? Aufcl ( talk ) 21:48, 12 September 2015 (UTC) Thanks for muddling along with. Update: I think Alex did it to me again - i can't seem to "format" anything other than background-color when applying straight colgroup col tags outside of wiki mark-up nor under wiki markup using the faux colgroup fax col approach. If you can verify, then we can safely call day1 a big honkin' waste of time. If so, the focus shifts back to coming up with css definitions using pseudo attributes nth-child /or nth-of-type that Mediawiki:s was originally geared for. george Orwell iii ( talk ) 22:05, 12 September 2015 (UTC) I don't think i understand (unless you are referring to the vertical-align:middle; weirdness i alluded to earlier?) As a quick test: Eat your heart out Isaac Newton!

The vein of questions I hoped to address first based on this tble example was whether it made more "sense" to make.css definitions (.faux-table-separate. Faux-inline-table-collapse or something along those lines ) or define just 2 and let the sister remaining 2 associations be handled via inline styling embedded within a template or two instead. The same sort of step-by-step "outlining" would be done for the thesis remaining table elements and then we'd start worrying about things like dot leaders and anchor page linking Hope that made sense. george Orwell iii ( talk ) 21:21, 12 September 2015 (UTC) Pretty much the response i expected. I agree with the four-way "table" class split although had already mentally tagged the separate/collapse pairing as border/no-border if an alternate semantics is permissible. As for staring at the "wrong-end" I thought it better to start with the impossible problems and raise all the issues I came across knowing the simpler ones would be solved near automatically later. Assembly-language generation: what can I say? The col/rowspan stuff is do-able but my solution is ugly and must be bettered to be accepted. The table teaser is just that and if it provokes some thought that is probably enough in itself. Sad to say the bulk-standard-class approach is incompatible with the "let ordinary plebs do the formatting as well as proofread" model.
Aufcl ( talk ) 21:07, 12 September 2015 (UTC) holy Sh! I thought we'd start today but I see i need to catch up to you quickly - i have not found anyway to mimic colspan or rowspan under faux based tables (at least not yet) so put that back burner for now. Second, i see you've gone right to addressing the biography content within a cell rather than where i had hoped - building a baseline css to create simple (and repetitive) formatting for index or toc reproduction purposes. That is why i linked to the current html5 valid elements and what they provide as default. Css attributes w/ their values as per the W3 specs yesterday. Take the opening table tag for example: the primary variance hinges upon the default display: value table or the alternative value inline-table. The next critical attribute is border-collapse: where the default is separate - which comes with associated attributes border-spacing: 2px 2px; empty-cells:show; while the 'alternative' for same border-collapse: is collapse - which comes with associated attributes border-spacing: 0 0; empty-cells:hide.
Aufcl ( talk ) 13:24, 12 September 2015 (UTC) Although mentioned above to make this point explicit the current mediawiki parser appears to "optimise away" the construct span!-Any comment- /span as demonstrated here. Normally who would care but guess who foolishly crafted their css to use this as a null place-holder as it happens to still work on.21wmf12 testbed (Yes I stuffed up—that's another story.) aufcl ( talk ) 13:24, 12 September 2015 (UTC) Also mentioned. At a technical level are you aware of a more-universal solution spondylolisthesis to the "use background: with a colour-specification (transparent not allowed on a higher z-index: layer to wipe out unwanted artefacts drawn by foreground components of a lower z-index: layer" problem, especially since the base.

And you thought dotted toc page listing was a complicated beast!

As promised @ george word Orwell iii. The following might well be too stupid for words but at least it gave me some practice and familiarisation with your "faux" css set. Due to limitations in my test-bed (I have extension:css installed: i've nagged you before and won't go there again I promise!) some layouts might seem a bit wonky.

This page is really very interesting and inspiring! . ) Unluckily, dealing with complex tables, i hoped that col (or faux-col) support text-align and vertical-align properties - they can't ; I never feel the need to use background-color, so the unique interesting property i could use is border ; this doesn't avoid the need. alex brollo ( talk ) 13:08, 16 September 2015 (UTC) @charset "utf-8 * Help pick a name * * Finally css3 has presented us with a way to mimic the * old-school col tag for formatting repetitive settings down * all the cells.

12 September 2015 (UTC) Agree. Its that slippery eye-talian Alex who keeps forcing me to try and pick-up and/or correct where he last leaves a singular topic "off" dot leader magic need not rely on the td holding the "text". If we can get dot leader magic into some sort of div based template this is a non issue same as above. Td formatting should not care what resides within that cell nor what (if anything) that thing "does". Pretty soon I'm just going to shove "faux tables" down everybody's throat - it seems like the only way to make folks realize its the key to near exacting html table renderings found with their true html table tag counterparts. In short, if the following. Css is in "effect".faux-table display: table; border-collapse: separate; border-spacing: 2px 2px; empty-cells: show;.
One warning: it would appear to be currently unused outside of its own documentation (on further investigation it appears only george Orwell iii and myself have ever mentioned it in the past; probably nobody else even knows about it?) aufcl ( talk ) 23:34,. The problem I see with either approach is overcoming the longstanding poor practices when comes to table application. If we can manage to separate the approaches for occasional complex tables (tables found in the body of a psm article for example) and frequent common tables (such as the toc or index for psm volumes i'm sure we can come up with a less. The first step has always been reaching some sort of community consensus of what exactly the "baseline" formatting for both occasional-complex and frequent-common table types should be and then build (templatizize) from there as user needs or formatting caveats may require. I never understood why we can't seem to do this for at least a single row of the more common toc entries between 2 to 5 table-cells long per row even. george Orwell iii ( talk ) 23:56, 11 September 2015 (UTC) This is not the place to have this conversation. The "community" will instantly split itself into two camps: those who expect dot-leaders to work; and those who do not want them at all.
