Hi

How can I detect whether a tablecell is previously set? I use two for-loops to construct the table. However, sometimes I use rowspan to make a cell span over several rows. Later interations in the for-loops should detect whether the current cell is contained in a previous rowspan, and take the appropriate action.

I'm not sure what you mean. Could you post an example with comments?

Nevermind:) I found a solution using an array, where I for each coloumn in the table had a number telling how many rows I should skip. A cell (<td>-tag) is only printed if the corresponding element in the array is 0. Otherwise the corresponding element is decremented.
