Table Body for an OASIS XML Exchange (CALS) Table

In STS Extended ONLY

Container element that holds the rows and columns of the body (as opposed to the header) portions of an OASIS XML Exchange (CALS) table. (This structure is available only in the Extended versions of NISO STS; it is not available in the Interchange versions of NISO STS.) In order to distinguish the OASIS XML Exchange (CALS) elements from the XHTML table model, all OASIS XML Exchange (CALS) table elements must be namespaced in NISO STS, by default using the OASIS URI and the namespace prefix “oasis:”.


OASIS Table Documentation: Documentation for the OASIS XML Exchange Table Model Document Type Definition can be found at: https://www.oasis-open.org/specs/tm9901.htm.
OASIS Table Note: The OASIS modules for the OASIS XML Exchange table model (based on the CALS table model) have been included in the NISO STS Extended Tag Sets, so <oasis:table> may be used in addition to or in place of the XHTML <table> element.
