{html_table} is a custom function that dumps an array of data into an HTML table. The cols attribute determines how many columns will be in the table. The table_attr, tr_attr and td_attr values determine the attributes given to the table, tr and td tags. If tr_attr or td_attr are arrays, they will be cycled through. trailpad is the value put into the trailing cells on the last table row if there are any present.
