HTML – Layouts

79

HTML Code:

<table id="shell" bgcolor="black" border="1" heigh="200" width="300">
<tr><td>
<table id="inner" bgcolor="white" heigh="100" width="100">
<tr><td>Tables inside tables!</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr></table>

Tables inside tables:

Tables inside tables!

The white table (identified as inner) exists inside of the (shell) table, the black one. A light bulb should be going off inside of your head as you explore how this system will allow for the creation of limitless layouts.

HTML – Standard Layout

A fairly standard layout consists of a banner near the top, navigation, and your content or display box. These are the backbone to any great website.

HTML Code:

<table cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0"
 bgcolor="black" id="shell" height="250" width="400">
<tr height="50"><td colspan="2" bgcolor="white">
<table title="Banner" id="banner" border="0">
<tr><td>Place a banner here</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
<tr height="200"><td bgcolor="white">
<table id="navigation" title="Navigation" border="0">
<tr><td>Links!</td></tr>
<tr><td>Links!</td></tr>
<tr><td>Links!</td></tr>
</table>
</td><td bgcolor="white">
<table title="Content" id="content" border="0">
<tr><td>Content goes here</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr></table>

Basic Layout:

Content goes here

This approach is basic yet organized. Often times websites become too complex for the viewer to follow. The code becomes complex rather fast, you will need to be sure to properly assign height and width values to your tables as well. The more specific you are about heights and widths, the less debugging you will have to perform.

HTML Code:

<table id="shell" title="Shell" height="250" width="400"
 border="0" bgcolor="black" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0">
<tr height="50"><td bgcolor="white">
<table title="banner" id="banner">
<tr><td>Banner goes here</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
<tr height="25"><td bgcolor="white">
<table title="Navigation" id="navigation">
<tr><td>Links!</td>
<td>Links!</td>
<td>Links!</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr>
<tr><td bgcolor="white">
<table title="Content" id="content">
<tr><td>Content goes here</td></tr>
</table>
</td></tr></table>

Basic Layout 2:

Content goes here

The code is quite a lot to look at, break it up and organize it in your own way to make things easier for you.
