NAME

wml::std::box - Easily Create Rectangular Box

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



 #use wml::std::box

 <box [attributes]>
 ...
 </box>



DESCRIPTION

The <box> container tag puts its body into a nice rectangular box which itself is build via a HTML <table> construct.

ATTRIBUTES

header This attribute switches between two totally different box variants. When it is present, a headlined box is created by the use of one single table but with space GIFs. When this attribute is missing a standard box is created by the use of two nested tables but without any space GIFs.
bgcolor This sets the background color of the box.
fgcolor This sets the foreground (text) color of the box.
bdcolor This sets the color for the border of the box. The effect of this attribute is the automatic generation of a nested table construct to achieve the optical effect.
bdspace This sets the space between the border and the body of the box in pixels. Default is 4 pixel.
bdwidth This sets the border width in pixels. Default is 1 pixel.
width This sets the total table width in pixels. Default is no specific width for the standard box and 300 pixels for the headlined box (because the headlined variant needs to know a fixed size to create the GIFs accordingly).
summary Add a description of this table. This attribute is recommended in HTML 4.0.

EXAMPLE



 <box bdcolor="#000000" bdwidth=1 bdspace=10
      bgcolor="#ffffff" fgcolor="#000000">
 Foo Bar Quux
 </box>

 <box header="Foo Bar Quux Header"
      bdcolor="#000000" bdwidth=1 bdspace=10
      bgcolor="#ffffff" fgcolor="#000000">
 Foo Bar Quux
 </box>
