Substitute table by css - query which header-field is processed

2006-08-26 10:35:02
Hello Mhonarc-users,

I am trying to replace the usual HTML-table for the header-fields by
some CSS based styling - basically a Idea i found on

That seems to work good, you can find a (minimal) example on - the
Ressource-file I used, you can see on:

I think, that such constructs like

<label for="headerline"><em>Date</em></label>
<span id="headerline">Wed, 15 Dec 2004 17:05:30 +0100</span>

are much clearer than the usual table-based design (or unordered list) -
and one can do the design in a seperate css-file.

There is only one drawback: the "id"-attribute should be unique - and
now it is not. Is there a way (a variable or something) where I can
query, which header-field is processed currently? I have not found one...

So I could write for example

<span id="headerline-$CURRENTHEADERFIELD$">

and it would generate first id="headerline-subject", than
id="headerline-date", ...
That would also allow it to specify attributes (like unique colours) for
each header field in the css-file.

Bye, Wolfgang
