Chapter 9. Using Tables > Table Anatomy

Table Anatomy

Tables may seem complicated, but in actuality the basic concept is pretty simple. Tables occupy a rectangular area of a page, or even the entire page, and divide it into sections. These sections can be arranged vertically from top to bottom, where they are called rows. Inside the rows, you can have sections arranged horizontally across the page to form columns. A table may have any number of rows and columns, but every table has at least one row and one column in each row. The individual sections created by the intersection of rows and columns are referred to as cells. Content (images and text) inside a cell always stays inside that cell, allowing you to decide how everything on your page should go. The basic structure of a table is shown in Figure 9.1.
