HTML – Tables

49

HTML Code:

<table border="1">
<tr><td>Row 1 Cell 1</td><td>Row 1 Cell 2</td></tr>
<tr><td>Row 2 Cell 1</td><td>Row 2 Cell 2</td></tr>
</table>

Basic Table:

Row 1 Cell 1Row 1 Cell 2
Row 2 Cell 1Row 2 Cell 2

Content is placed within tables cells. A table cell is defined by <td> and </td>.The border attribute defines how wide the table’s border will be.

Spanning Multiple Rows and Cells

Use rowspan to span multiple rows and colspan to span multiple columns.

Note: if you would like to place headers at the top of your columns, use the <th> tag as shown below. By default these headers are bold to set them apart from the rest of your table’s content.

HTML Code:

<table border="1">
<tr>
<th>Column 1</th>
<th>Column 2</th>
<th>Column 3</th>
</tr>
<tr><td rowspan="2">Row 1 Cell 1</td>
<td>Row 1 Cell 2</td><td>Row 1 Cell 3</td></tr>
<tr><td>Row 2 Cell 2</td><td>Row 2 Cell 3</td></tr>
<tr><td colspan="3">Row 3 Cell 1</td></tr>
</table>

Colspan and Rowspan:

Column 1Column 2Column 3
Row 1 Cell 1Row 1 Cell 2Row 1 Cell 3
Row 2 Cell 2Row 2 Cell 3
Row 3 Cell 1

Cell Padding and Spacing

With the cellpadding and cellspacing attributes you will be able to adjust the white space on your tables. Spacing defines the width of the border, while padding represents the distance between cell borders and the content within. Color has been added to the table to emphasize these attributes.

HTML Code:

<table border="1" cellspacing="10"

 bgcolor="rgb(0,255,0)">
<tr>
<th>Column 1</th>
<th>Column 2</th>
</tr>
<tr><td>Row 1 Cell 1</td><td>Row 1 Cell 2</td></tr>
<tr><td>Row 2 Cell 1</td><td>Row 2 Cell 2</td></tr>
</table>

Cellspacing and Padding:

Column 1Column 2
Row 1 Cell 1Row 1 Cell 2
Row 2 Cell 1Row 2 Cell 2

And now we will change the cellpadding of the table and remove the cellspacing from the previous example.

HTML Code:

<table border="1" cellpadding="10"
 bgcolor="rgb(0,255,0)">
<tr>
<th>Column 1</th>
<th>Column 2</th>
</tr>
<tr><td>Row 1 Cell 1</td><td>Row 1 Cell 2</td></tr>
<tr><td>Row 2 Cell 1</td><td>Row 2 Cell 2</td></tr>
</table>

Cell Pads:

Column 1Column 2
Row 1 Cell 1Row 1 Cell 2
Row 2 Cell 1Row 2 Cell 2

The value you specify for padding and spacing is interpreted by the browser as a pixel value you. So a value of 10 is simply 10 pixels wide. Most attributes that use numeric values for their measurements use pixel
