Chapter 6. Tables > Table Basics

6.1. Table Basics

A table is a grid of rows and columns that intersect to form cells, as shown in Figure 6-2. A cell acts like a mini document window, in which you can place images, text, and even additional tables. And because a cell can have a fixed width and height, you can place these items with precision. For example, you can build a table with three cells in a row and fill each cell with a single column of text, thus simulating the column layout of a print publication such as a newspaper.

Figure 6-2. Rows, columns, and cells make up a table. Cell spacing specifies how many pixels of space appear between cells. Cell padding, on the other hand, is the space from the edge of a cell to the content inside the cell. It provides a margin between the four sides of the cell and the cell's content, as described on page 149.
