Chapter 12. Setting Up Tables

Chapter 12. Setting Up Tables

Before table functionality was added to HTML, all images and text aligned on the left side of a Web page, with no other choice offered. Originally, tables were used to present columns and rows of data, such as scientific reports or nightclub schedules (Figure 12.1), but clever designers quickly realized that tables could also be adapted to increase design options and give designers more control over layouts and spacing (Figure 12.2). You can create complex table layouts for entire-page designs.
