Tables

Tables should be used only for data that requires a tabular format, such as a list of contact information. Tables should not be used as a means to lay out document content; this may cause problems if non-visual media or data is placed in tables.

Tables should contain tabular data only:

  1. To see your table fully formatted, save the draft of the page and view the entire page; most formatting elements are not added by the style sheet until the page has been saved.
