* html export: row/column dividers in tables

I recently found a need for visible dividers (or "rules") between the
rows and columns of an org table exported to html.  The most recent
discussion of this that I could find on gmane was
http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/1709/match=table+rules+html
from 2007, which concluded that such rules weren't supported, so here's
a kludgey workaround I found today:

#+BEGIN_HTML
<pre>
|----+----+----+----|
| a0 | b0 | c0 | d0 |
|----+----+----+----|
| a1 | b1 | c1 | d1 |
|----+----+----+----|
| a2 | b2 | c2 | d2 |
|----+----+----+----|
</pre>
#+END_HTML

It isn't pretty, but it works when you really need visual separation of
rows and columns.  Here's what it looks like in real life:

BTW, here's how I got the org-mode code sample onto the webpage:

#+begin_src org
#+BEGIN_HTML
<pre>
|----+----+----+----|
| a0 | b0 | c0 | d0 |
|----+----+----+----|
| a1 | b1 | c1 | d1 |
|----+----+----+----|
| a2 | b2 | c2 | d2 |
|----+----+----+----|
</pre>
#+END_HTML
#+end_src

Hi Bill, 

If I understand your post correctly, I think this section of the manual
will help to accomplish what you are looking for---i.e., the creation of
special vertical lines in tables:

http://orgmode.org/manual/Column-groups.html#Column-groups

Also you change the appearance of tables using css. 

Best,
Matt

Thanks, I'd missed that.

I'll take a look.

Also, since today, latest git version, you can use

#+ATTR_HTML: border="2" rules="all" frame="all"

before the table to modify the default table tag.
If you always want lines, modify the default table tag
in `org-export-html-table-tag'.

Thank you!  

Before I update from git (or whatever the terminology is - I'm a cvs
guy), could I persuade you to apply Nick Dokos' patch to org-exp.el?
His patch is in http://article.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/11862, and
the problem it solves is described in my initial message in the thread,
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/11857.  In his patch
message, Nick offers a clear explanation of why the problem happens.

To summarize the problem, I'm prompted to kill a temp buffer when I
html-export an org file that contains these tags:

   #+begin_src message
   [...]
   #+end_src

so when I export the containing project, I have to babysit the process
and answer 'y' to each query about killing the temp buffer.  Here's a
full example that triggers the bug:

   #+begin_src message
   From: Nick Dokos <nicholas.dokos@hp.com>
   Subject: Re: [Orgmode] Buffer *temp* modified; kill anyway? 
   To: Bill White <billw@wolfram.com>
   Cc: emacs-orgmode@gnu.org

   X-Sent: 1 hour, 9 minutes, 51 seconds ago
   Message-ID: <9344.1236191912@alphaville.usa.hp.com>
   #+end_src

(I like to provide fontified email excerpts in my per-project org files
for coworkers who read them on the web.)

Many thanks -

Hi Bill,

I did apply Nick's patch on March 5,
commit 6ccc6b46528ad70f2f3267a7e40c70494f5c2192

If you are not comfortable with git, you can always get the
most recent snapshot at

Bill,

Carsten applied the patch on March 5. Here's the description:

commit 6ccc6b46528ad70f2f3267a7e40c70494f5c2192
Author: Carsten Dominik <carsten.dominik@gmail.com>
Date:   Thu Mar 5 00:01:50 2009 +0100

    Export: Fix problem with exporting message mode src regions
    
    Message-mode assigns auto-safe file names to temporary buffers, in the
    draft directory.  This causes problems when running message-mode in a
    temporary buffer with with-temp-buffer.  When the form tries to kill
    the buffer, is asks for saving it....
    
    This commit turns off the buffer-modified flag and so avoids the
    query.

HTH,
Nick
