Chapter 5. Creating Tables > Table Terminology

Table Terminology

A table is nothing more than a grid to display data, much like a spreadsheet. In fact, tables originally were intended to display spreadsheet-type data, but Web designers found them useful to lay out content within HTML.

Some basic options are associated with all tables, and I'd like to briefly review some of the common elements and terms you'll encounter when working with them. As I talk about these different elements, be sure to refer to Figure 5.1. This figure is the Insert Table dialog box that you can activate by clicking the Insert Table button under the Common tab of the Insert panel. This dialog box asks you to define the different parameters associated with a table.
