morerows Specifies the number of additional rows to add in a vertical span. NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No

char alignment character

Default source for entry elements starting in this column. If character alignment is specified, the value is the single alignment character source for any implied char values for entry immediately in this column. A value of "" (the null string) means there is no aligning character.

CDATA #IMPLIED No
charoff horizontal offset of alignment character when align=char

Default source for entry elements starting in this column. For character alignment on an entry in the column, horizontal character offset is the percent of the current column width to the left of the (left edge of the) alignment character.

This value should be number, greater than 0 and less than or equal to 100.

NMTOKEN #IMPLIED No
valign Indicates the vertical alignment of text in a table entry (cell). Allowable values are:
top
Align the text to the top of the table entry (cell).
bottom
Align the text to the bottom of the table entry (cell).
middle
Align the text to the middle of the table entry (cell).

rev Indicates revision level of an element. It is useful for flagging outputs based on revision. If no value is specified, but the attribute is specified on an ancestor within a map or within the related-links section, the value will inherit from the closest ancestor. CDATA #IMPLIED No
base A generic attribute that has no specific purpose, but is intended to act as a base for specialized attributes that have a simple value syntax like the conditional processing attributes (one or more alphanumeric values separated by whitespace). The attribute takes a space delimited set of values. However, when acting as a container for generalized attributes, the content model will be more complex; that model is documented in the "attribute generalization" section of the DITA architectural specification.
