Use CSS Styles for Tables

1. Insert a table and enter some text in the table header and cells.

2. Enter at least the following css style definitions in the custom.css file on the Stages server because these styles are predefined in the standard.css file. The classname (in this example minimal_table_style) must be specified after the stages_descriptionclass.

.stages_description .minimal_table_style table {}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr {}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style td {}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style th {}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr p,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr h1,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr h2,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr h3,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr img {}

3. Define the class name in the table properties advanced tab field Stylesheet Classes.

Note: You can also enter an ID if you have a css definition with ID's.

In this example, the style class is named minimal_table_style.

.stages_description .minimal_table_style table {
 font-family: "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Grande", Sans-Serif;
 font-size: 12px;
 background: #fff;
 width: 480px;
 border-collapse: collapse;
 text-align: left;
 margin: 20px;
}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr {
 vertical-align: top;
}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style td {
 border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
 color: #669;
 padding: 6px 8px;
}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style th {
 font-size: 14px;
 font-weight: normal;
 color: #039;
 border-bottom: 2px solid #6678b1;
 padding: 10px 8px;
}
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr p,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr h1,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr h2,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr h3,
.stages_description .minimal_table_style tr img {
 color: #669;
}

table#minimal_table_style{
 font-family: "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Grande", Sans-Serif;
 font-size: 12px;
 background: #fff;
 width: 480px;
 border-collapse: collapse;
 text-align: left;
 margin: 20px;
}
#minimal_table_style tr{
 vertical-align: top;
}
#minimal_table_style td{
 border-bottom: 1px solid #ccc;
 color: #669;
 padding: 6px 8px;
}
#minimal_table_style th{
 font-size: 14px;
 font-weight: normal;
 color: #039;
 border-bottom: 2px solid #6678b1;
 padding: 10px 8px;
