Part III: Layout and Design with Dreamwe... > Create a Table to Aid Page Layout

Hour 8. Create a Table to Aid Page Layout

In the last hour, we explored some of the properties of tables and table cells. You used tables in the same way you might use tables in a spreadsheet or a word processing application, to present data in a logical way. In this hour, you will apply more properties and new commands, using tables to aid with Web page layout.

With the first versions of HTML, there was no method of positioning objects at a certain place on the screen. Since HTML is not a page layout or design language, the ability to position objects in a certain part of the screen was lacking. When table objects were added to the HTML specification, they gave Web developers the ability to place an object in a table cell so that it could appear in a specific place on the screen.
