HyperText Markup Language/Tag List/table


The table tag is for creating a table in the HTML code. It is a simple way of organising a large amount of data. With the attributes the user can manipulate the table to create a table that suits the webpage.


This is an example of the layout coding for a basic table:

<table border="1" align="center">
    <th>Hundredths</th> <th>Tenths</th> <th>Ones</th>

This is what the table looks like on the webpage:

Hundredths Tenths Ones
Seven Eight Three
