Examples

Table with a caption

<table>
  <caption>Average scores</caption>
  <row part="header">
    <cell>Name</cell>
    <cell>Score</cell>
  </row>
  <row>
    <cell>Alice</cell>
    <cell>17</cell>
  </row>
  <row>
    <cell>Bob</cell>
    <cell>19</cell>
  </row>
</table>

This would be generally be represented in HTML as:

<table>
  <caption>Average scores</caption>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>Name</th>
      <th>Score</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>Alice</td>
      <td>17</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Bob</td>
      <td>19</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
 </table>

And would render as:

Average scores
NameScore
Alice17
Bob19

Compatibility

This element was introduced in the first draft of PSML and is well-supported from PageSeeder 5.1.

The PSML caption supports rich text (such as character-style elements), however, the OfficeOpenXML equivalent <w:tblCaption> does not.
