Description Wang Yong 2011-09-05 03:21:20 UTC

It is not a bug but a new feature enhancement. Currently, more and more user use html table to render multiple dimension data. If the row and column is able to re-size by web user, it will be much user friendly to them. Although web developer can implement this feature by js, like using jQuery, it is not easy and cost a lot effort, and not all browser support the same feature. So, if html5 is able to consider to add one attribute to html table "resizable", it would be great for web developer.

Thanks and Regards,
Yong Wang.

Theoretically this could be done by adjusting the CSS 'resize' property <>.  This is a styling issue, and shouldn't be done through HTML.
Comment 2 Wang Yong 2011-09-08 03:15:15 UTC
Sure, it should implemented by user agent respectively.
Thanks for your reply.
