Cell Padding (NISO JATS table model)

Amount of space, measured in pixels, between the border of a cell and the contents of a table cell. (This attribute is based on and intended to be converted easily to the XHMTL cellpadding attribute.)


Best Practice: Although the Tag Set can enforce only that this attribute contain any text, numbers, or special characters, best practice is to constrain this value to a counting number (positive integer).
