Exporting table styles for CSS

Exporting table styles for CSS

Exporting table styles for CSS

(OP)
I'm using CS3 on a PC. I need to export table styles (columns, headers, rows, etc.) to CSS so that my developer doesn't need to recreate tables everytime I make them in InDesign. If this can't be done in CS3, what about in CS5? I figured out how to get the characeter and paragraph styles to work, but not tables.

Ideas?

RE: Exporting table styles for CSS

no one uses tables in web design these days.

RE: Exporting table styles for CSS

Of course people use tables in web design. They always will. That is how you present tabular data.

IDCS5x would not be an improvement for this task. It does not export table styles to the web.

...Tables are also exported, but certain formatting, such as table and cell strokes, is not exported. Tables are assigned unique IDs, so they can be referenced as Spry data sets in Dreamweaver.

spamjim - yes you are correct. the same data can also be presented using lists and divs.
