3.5 Tables

HTML tables allow web authors to arrange data into rows and columns.

Defining an HTML Table

An HTML table is defined with the<table>tag.

Each table row is defined with the <tr> tag. A table header is defined with the <th> tag. By default, table headings are bold and centered. A table data/cell is defined with the <td> tag.

Note: The <td> elements are the data containers of the table. They can contain all sorts of HTML elements; text, image, lists, other tables, etc.

HTML Table- Cells that Span Many Columns

To make a cell span more than one column, use the colspan attribute.
