7. Page Layout 101 > 7.5. Expanded Table Mode

Expanded Table Mode

When you use tables to lay out a Web page, you usually do things like hide table borders, use many small tables, and nest tables inside other tables. As you now know, these techniques conceal the actual table structure, creating an attractive Web page. But they can make it difficult for you to see how a table is put together, at least in Design view.

To make your task easier, Dreamweaver MX 2004 introduces the Expanded Table mode. Clicking the Expanded button on the Layout tab of the Insert bar adds visible borders to every table and cell and increases onscreen cell padding. As shown in Figure 7-14, now you can clearly see how many rows, columns, and cells your table has, making selecting and formatting that much easier. (Expanded Table mode never changes the actual page code; it merely affects how the page is displayed in Design view. The guideline borders and extra spacing don’t appear in a Web browser.)
