Part: II Designing a Home Page > Designing Pages with Tables

Hour 6. Designing Pages with Tables

We freely admit it: We love tables. With a little table know-how and finesse, you can take a plain-Jane Web page all the way to spectacular. By using tables to contain your page elements, you can restrain text from flowing clear across the page, put space around the edges of your design, and float your layout in the middle of a page. You can create complex Web page designs by placing images in portions of a table and text in other portions. By positioning tables within tables (called nesting), you can create elaborate layouts.

Writing the HTML by hand for complex table designs is beyond challenging. It is difficult, time-consuming, and headache provoking. Working this magic in GoLive, however, is a veritable delight. So, let's immerse you in the wonderful world of tables.

In this hour, you will learn how to

  • Add a table to your Web page

  • Adjust the basic table attributes

  • Select, add, and delete cells, rows, and columns

  • Color cells, rows, and columns

  • Format text in tables

  • Use tables to structure your Web page
