<colgroup> Table Column Group (NISO JATS table model)

A container element to hold column descriptions (element <col>) for a group of columns in a table—or for all of the columns in the table if there is only one <colgroup> in the table. Attributes on the <colgroup> apply to all of the columns in the group unless over-ridden on the <col>. (This element is based on and intended to be converted easily to the XHMTL colgroup element.)


Use W3C documentation for the XHTML 1.1 table model (https://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-modularization/abstract_modules.html#s_tablemodule).
