CSS Question

css table td triple diagonal split

This is the result that I am going for:


(The three Chinese are 调类, 调值 and 方言点.)

I just need a single

td class
that I can implement in my css table.

I've seen examples using
s or other image files, but I'm not looking for an image to load each time the table is loaded.

The answer here is not bad:

Create diagonal border of a cell

but I just can't get it to do what I want!

my solution so far is just to have a single td like this:

调类 →
</br>调值 ↘
</br>方言点 ↓

looks kind of ugly though:



You can change your HTML code a bit and use following styles:

.cell-divided {
	position: relative;
	width: 100px;
	height: 75px;
	border: 1px solid #513F33;
	color: #513F33;
	overflow: hidden;
.cell-divided > div {
	position: absolute;
	left: 0;
	top: 0;
	height: 1em;
	line-height: 1em;
	margin-top: -.5em;
	padding: 0 40px 0 0;
	width: 100%;
	text-align: right;
	white-space: nowrap;
	-webkit-transform-origin: 0 bottom;
	transform-origin: 0 bottom;
.cell-divided > div > span {
	display: inline-block;
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(1) {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(13deg);
	transform: rotate(13deg);
	left: -2px;
	top: -1px;
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(1) > span {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(-13deg);
	transform: rotate(-13deg);
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(2) {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(24deg);
	transform: rotate(24deg);
	border-bottom: 1px solid #513F33;
	height: 0;
	line-height: 0;
	margin-top: -1px
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(3) {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(38deg);
	transform: rotate(38deg);
	left: -4px;
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(3) > span {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(-38deg);
	transform: rotate(-38deg);
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(4) {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(53deg);
	transform: rotate(53deg);
	border-bottom: 1px solid #513F33;
	height: 0;
	line-height: 0;
	margin-top: -1px;
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(5) {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(75deg);
	transform: rotate(75deg);
	left: -12px;
	top: -30px;
.cell-divided > div:nth-child(5) > span {
	-webkit-transform: rotate(-75deg);
	transform: rotate(-75deg);
            <td class="cell-divided">

Of course, you will need to adjust styles to your table.
