Wrapper element for a complete table, including the tabular material (rows and columns), caption (including title), footnotes, and alternative descriptions of the table for purposes of accessibility.
Table Content: This element has been designed to capture a construct named “table”, whether that structure contains an explicit <table> element (from the NISO JATS XHTM™-inspired table model) contains non-tabular structures such as graphics, lists, or paragraphs. Many publishers associate table captions and table numbers with material that is not explicitly tabular.

Within the <table-wrap> element, the row and column tags that describe the table cells should be defined by the NISO JATS table model.
Design Note: Many journal tag sets use an element called “Table Footnote” (with a tag such as <tblfn>) for footnotes inside a table. This Tag Set uses <fn> inside tables, as well as everywhere else, relying instead on context to differentiate table footnotes. Footnotes inside a <table-wrap> are assumed to be footnotes to the table and, as part of the table, are displayed at the bottom of the table, usually as part of the <table-wrap-foot>, rather than at the bottom of the page or otherwise separated from the display of the table. In fact, an author can put both referenced footnotes and unreferenced paragraphs directly into the <table-wrap-foot>.
Position: The @position attribute may be used to indicate whether a <table-wrap> must be anchored at its exact location within the text or whether it may float, for example, to the top of the next page, into the next column, to the end of a logical file, or within a separate window.
