This element often contains an HTML fragment with ExpandXML set to TRUE to render embedded Field elements.

The following example defines the field headers for a view. Each field header in the view is rendered according to the class ms-vh, which is defined in Core.css (\\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\LCID\STYLES).


    <![CDATA[ <TABLE ID="onetidDoclibViewTbl0 ]]> 
    <![CDATA[ " width="100%" border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=1 
        rules=rows><TR VALIGN=TOP><FORM> ]]> 
      <![CDATA[ <TH class="ms-vh"> ]]> 
    <Field /> 
      <![CDATA[ </TH> ]]> 
    <![CDATA[ </FORM></TR> ]]>
