axis attribute provides a mechanism for grouping
related columns or rows of information. In the example above, there are
four pieces of information, but the email and phone details could be
grouped together as points of contact. You’re advised, however, to
reserve the use of
axis for the
element (if you feel the urge to use it, which may be
unlikely, given its poor support).
In this code, four
table headers are grouped into three categories—name, contact, and
<tr> <td axis="name">Fred</td> <td axis="contact">email@example.com</td> <td axis="contact">123456</td> <td axis="location">1/A</td> </tr>
This attribute can take as its value any name that the developer chooses, as long as it doesn’t contain spaces or special characters.
Very poor support is provided for this attribute. Refer to the
compatibility section for this attribute as applied to the
element for more
