It may be useful in tables
that contain financial information to align contents beyond the simple
"center" determinations. For example, you might align
numerical data to a decimal point, or some other symbol. The
char attribute allows you to define the character
against which the data is aligned, but this only works if the
align attribute has also been set to
This column data is set to align to
<table border="1"> <col align="char" char=":"/> <col align="char" char=":"/> <col align="char" char=":"/> <col align="char" char=":"/> <tr> <th colspan="4" scope="col">Work Contact Points</th> </tr> <tr> <th>Name sfdg sfg sdfg sdfg sdfg sfsgsdf gs</th> <th>Email</th> <th>Phone</th> <th>Floor/Block</th> </tr> ⋮ </table>
This attribute takes as its value a single character that appears in the table; for example, a decimal point character.
This attribute is poorly supported and should not be relied upon.
