border Border (Frame) around a Table (NISO JATS table model)

Thickness, in pixels, of the border to draw around the table. A value of “0” indicates that the table has no border. (This attribute is based on and intended to be converted easily to the XHMTL border attribute.)


Supplying the @border attribute without specifying a value indicates that the table has a border of the application’s default thickness.

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).
OPTIONAL on element: <table>
Value Meaning
Counting number Thickness, measured in pixels, of the border around the table.
