  • Support colspan attribute within the table cell element.
    • The value of colspan is an integer, indicating how many columns the current cell should span in a rendered view.

This is the USX companion to USFM 3.0 proposal "Support for explicit table cell spanning". See: ubsicap/usfm#12 for detail.


To have confidence that markup expresses the intended table layout accurately, we require an explicit syntax to for column spanning.


Numbers 2:18-24 (final row of table)
