Crafting Page Design with Layout Tables

As you learned in Chapter 9, “Working with Tables,” tables consist of rows and columns. Each row or column contains one or more cells. Each cell, in turn, has its own border, as well as the table itself. By default, the table borders are visible. However, by “turning off” table border display, your visitor sees only the text and images you’ve placed within the table cells, not the borders. The table thus becomes a tool for designing an entire Web page. The heightened level of control lets you precisely position elements in a way that helps boost your business’s identity.

Templates Are for Tables Too!

If you want a jump-start in using tables for page layout, shop through FrontPage’s page templates. Choose File, New to open the New task pane. Under the heading New Web Site, click More Web Site Templates. In the General tab, click Personal Web Site. When the Web site has been created, double-click index.htm. This page uses a table for layout (see Figure 11-1). You can use such a table-based template as a starting point for your own page, saving time in brainstorming layouts and in starting to execute them, too.
