The <TD> and <TH> Elements

The actual data in tables is contained in <TD> and <TH> elements. You can find the properties of the <TD> and <TH> elements in Table 14.14. Remember that JavaScript’s core HTML properties, methods, and events, which we covered in Chapters 5 and 6, apply to the <TD> and <TH> elements as well.
