nameend Name of Ending Column (OASIS Table Model)

Names the column (using the name specified by the attribute @colname) that is the last column in a horizontally-spanning cell


Horizontal spanning in tables is accomplished by placing the content to be spanned in a table cell (<oasis:entry>) and using its @namest and @nameend attributes to indicate the column on which the span should start and the column on which the span should end (inclusive). Both attributes indicate a column by column name (the content of the @colname attribute).

OPTIONAL on element: <oasis:entry>
Value Meaning
A name The alphanumeric string representing a column identified by the @colname attribute
Restriction @nameend is an optional attribute; there is no default.
