The "output_dots" Element

The role of the "output_dots" element is a special purpose "output_label" portal that it is designed for use exclusively within character sheet output. This portal makes it possible to easily insert a series of alternating dots and spaces between two portals within character sheet output. The dots are guaranteed to be vertically aligned, regardless of the span over which they cover, ensuring that a sequence of items in a table that use the dot spanning will look clean and consistent. This portal behaves just like an output_label portal in other respects, so be sure to assign a style the provides the font in which to render the dot sequence. There are no attributes or child elements for this portal.


The following example demonstrates what an output dots portal might look like. All default values are assumed for optional attributes.
