HTML Question

What happened to colspan='*'?

There once was a very handy construct:

colspan='*'
meaning "span this column and all the rest of the columns to its right in this table." The production now gives an error in the html validator.

I'm too lazy to count by hand all the columns to be spanned: that's what software is for, after all.

What's the modern equivalent of
colspan='*'
, if any?

Answer

Try this link: HTML colgroup Tag. I think this is what you're looking for?
