7. Page Layout 101 > 7-10. Nesting Tables in Standard View

Nesting Tables in Standard View

By merging cells, you can create complex tables that offer precise control over your layouts. If you use Layout mode to create a detailed, handcrafted design, you’ll see how Dreamweaver can generate complex tables using this technique.

But on the Web, simpler is usually better. Sometimes, instead of spending time and effort chopping up and merging cells to create a certain look, the best solution is to nest tables—placing a table within a table—instead of creating one complex table (see Figure 7-25).

Since a table cell acts just like a mini document, you can put anything that you’d normally place on a page inside a cell—graphics, text, links and, yes, even tables. Simply click a cell and use one of the techniques described earlier to add and format the table.
