Part III: Creating Advanced Pages > Creating and Formatting Tables

Chapter 10. Creating and Formatting Tables

Tables make it easy to present related text or images in a quick-to-scan form. With their rows and columns composed of individual cells, tables also lend themselves to clean-looking border and color treatments. A major plus of using tables is their consistent appearance no matter which browser Web visitors use. That’s why so many commercial Web sites are designed around page-sized tables, similar to the layout grids favored by traditional paper-based designers. Rather than use a single table to build a page, however, remember to use several tables. That way the top of the page will appear more quickly as the tables farther down the page are still downloading. By the way, you’ll find it much quicker building tables using the Tables toolbar (Figure 10.1). Activate it by choosing View > Toolbars > Tables.

Figure 10.1. Using the Tables toolbar lets you bypass many of FrontPage’s menu commands for building tables.
