<ARRAY> Math Array

Definition: The <ARRAY> element can be used for LaTeX-like arrays.

Attributes:

ALIGN

Arrays are vertically positioned by default so that the mid point of the array is aligned with preceding and following expressions. The ALIGN attribute can assume these values:

* TOP: The array's top row is aligned with the same baseline as the following or preceding expression.

* MIDDLE: This is the default. The array's middle row is aligned with the same baseline as the following or preceding expression. When there are an even number of rows, the array's midpoint is used instead.

* BOTTOM: The array's bottom row is aligned with the same baseline as the following or preceding expression.

COLDEF

Columns are centered by default. COLDEF can be used to specify each column's horizontal alignment in a character string using L for left, R for right, and C for center alignment @md LLCR in a 4 column table, for example.

You can also use COLDEF to place a "+" "-" or "=" between columns, such as coldef="C+C+C+C=C". The browser will ignore whitespace within this attribute.

LDELIM

LDELIM is a character or entity for the left delimiter, such as ldelim="|" or ldelim="[". No delimiter is the default.

RDELIM

RDELIM is a character or entity name for the right delimiter, such as rdelim="|" or rdelim="]". No delimter is the default.

LABELS

When this attribute is present, it has the same effect as TeX's bordermatrix command. The first row and column will be separated from the rest of the array.

Context: <ARRAY> is legal within

<ABOVE>, <BAR>, <BELOW>, <BOX>, <BT>, <DDOT>, <DOT>, <HAT>, <ITEM>, <MATH>, <OF>, <ROOT>, <SQRT>, <T>, <TILDE>, <VEC>

The following markup can be used within <ARRAY>

<ROW>

Suggested style/usage: Close Tag: REQUIRED

Examples:

<ARRAY>
<ROW><ITEM>a_11_<ITEM>a_12_<ITEM>&cdots;<ITEM>a_1n_
<ROW><ITEM>&vdots;<ITEM>&vdots;<ITEM>&ddots;<ITEM>&vdots;
<ROW><ITEM>a_n1_<ITEM>a_n2_<ITEM>&cdots;<ITEM>a_nn_
</ARRAY>
