Lesson 10 - Tables
To create a table, you need to start and end it. To start a table, you have to
type <table>, and to end the table, type </table>.
What goes between the start and end tags depends on what type of table you want.
Every table has at least one row. A table row is one horizontal row made up of
x number of table data cells. It is completely up to you what you put into
each cell. You can enter text, images, links...anything you'd like. If you want to create a table with
two columns and one row, you need to type:
Tables are a great way to divide a page and organise how your page looks.
A table is basically a grid made up of columns and rows. Each little box is called a cell.
Your text, pictures, or whatever you'd like to post goes inside the cells.
<tr> - start table row
<td> - start table data cell
type your text or image tags here
<td> - start the second table data cell
type your text or image here
It will now look like this:
This is the first data cell...
...and this is the second.
Woo hoo I have created my first table!
You can have any number of table rows and data cells, as long as you remember
to end each tag. The main thing to remember is to start with a <tr>. Adding extra
<tr>'s will add extra rows, and adding extra <td>'s will create
an extra cell. If you want to add an extra cell or row, make sure you end the one
before it before starting a new one.
