Chapter 5. Tables > Advanced Table Tags

5.6. Advanced Table Tags

While it is easy to build a simple table quickly with the tags we have described, you may desire more advanced table control such as varying border styles, running headers and footers, and column-based layout. HTML 4.0 adds new tags to accomplish these tasks, which originally appeared as extensions for Internet Explorer 3.0. Although they are defined in the latest standard, the latest browsers do not fully implement them. When making a table with these tags, make sure to test your tables on multiple browsers to ensure desired layout.

5.6.1. Table Section Tags

The three table section tags provide a way for you to break your table into logical sections: the header, body, and footer. You define the sections by placing the row tags (<tr>) within the <thead>, <tbody>, or <tfoot> tags. The usual attributes for controlling the placement of the contents can be used in these tags to set the alignment for the rows and cells they contain.
