HTMLTableSectionElement: ch property

Deprecated: This feature is no longer recommended. Though some browsers might still support it, it may have already been removed from the relevant web standards, may be in the process of being dropped, or may only be kept for compatibility purposes. Avoid using it, and update existing code if possible; see the compatibility table at the bottom of this page to guide your decision. Be aware that this feature may cease to work at any time.

The ch property of the HTMLTableSectionElement interface does nothing. It reflects the char attribute of the section element.

Note: This property was designed to participate to the ability to align table cell content on a specific character (typically the decimal point), but was never implemented by browsers.

To achieve such alignment, watch for the support of a string value with the text-align CSS property.


A single character.
