Table Basics

A table is a grid of rows and columns that intersect to form cells, as shown in Figure 7-2. 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.

Tables are also the key to building more complex designs. For instance, you can merge cells together to create larger cells that span columns or rows, nest tables for added versatility, and create flexible designs that expand to fit the browser window. (This should all sound familiar to anyone who’s used, for example, the table tool in Microsoft Word.)
