This tutorial is part of a web programming course for people who have no programming experience.
A web page will often display content in the form of a table. The important thing to understand about tables is that they are made up of rows, and each row contains a number of cells (sound familiar?). Keep this in mind as we go about building a sample table.
We'll start by adding a table element and set it's border attribute:
To add a row to the table, nest a tr element into the table:
<table border="1"> <tr></tr> </table>
To add cells to a row, we use td elements (td stands for table data). We'll make this a two column table, so each row will have two td elements.
NEXT LESSON: Forms
<table border="1"> <tr> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> </table>
