CSS Tabular Form

Instead of using HTML table elements  to construct a table for the presentation of information, simple tabular information can also be rendered in form of CSS table by CSS table objects for most modern UA.

CSS Table Object

The CSS table objects needed to created CSS tabular form are CSS table-row and table-cell objects. When there are two or more sibling CSS table-row or table-cell objects of the same type with only white space in between, these CSS table objects will be rendered as CSS tabular form by modern UA.

Examples of Simple CSS Tabular Forms

The most common examples are presentation columns of same height, and item list header with fixed column width.

Columns of Same Height in a Row of Blocks

All sibling table cells with only white space in between will be rendered as CSS tabular form of same column height by modern UA.
