General Formatting notes:

  • use only 1 period (.) before each line/cell, followed by at least 1 space.
  • Justification (p<>.) may not be applicable in conjunction with other formatting.
  • " < p > < br > < /p > " (sans spaces/quotes) produces a page break independent of ‘compiled’ spaces or other artificial breaks (e.g. via [Enter] key). The " < br > " tag is repeatable for longer breaks.
  • Footnotes and Headers have to be separated from each other and body text by at least one blank line.
  • %{color:color} block attributes go here %






Tables:

  • Max char width ( W ): ???px, ??….; average char width is < 20px.
  • Addition of background or text color adds ??px to norm.
  • Normal header adjustments (H1 … H6) do not seem to work in table cells.
  • There’s nothing too fancy (like automatically updated text) in the standard (Textile) code format.
  • Autospacing &etc. is applied in the final display, not during the write-up.
  • rowspan & colspan are relative, requiring rows & cols to follow or precede(?)
  • only block attributes can be applied before rows (e.g. NOT alignment, text modifiers).
  • any color that can be applied as a background, can be applied to text, can be applied row-by-row, and in conjunction with background (e.g. Row 0).
  • Table width may be set at the beginning, e.g. “table{border:1px solid black;width:750px}.”
  • 750 is full-page width, and tables can be oversized
