ISSUE-38: Align content in a column on decimal points, etc.

align columns

Align content in a column on decimal points, etc.

State:
RAISED
Product:
CSS3 Template Layout
Raised by:

Opened on:

Description:
(May also apply to CSS Table module.)

There is a 'vertical-align' to align the cells in a row in certain ways, but no 'horizontal-align' to align cells in a column. Possible things to align on are decimal points, centers or baselines (in case the cell has only vertical text).

Is there a need to introduce a 'horizontal-align: left | right | center | <string> | baseline'?

The <string> value only works if the content is a single line of horizontal text. The others only work if the content is vertical text with no horizontal text at the top level.
