Exercises

  1. Surf the Web, looking for web page layouts that use tables. You might be surprised at how many websites use tables heavily. If you are not sure whether a site uses tables, select the View Source command in your browser and look for table tags in the code.

  2. Insert a table and experiment with merging and splitting cells. Insert a nested table into one of the cells in Standard mode or draw a nested table in Layout mode. If you are drawing in Layout mode, make sure you are drawing on an area of the table that does not have a cell drawn in it.

  3. Find a web page design that you like and take a screen capture of it (by pressing Alt+PrtScrn in Windows or Shift+Command+3 on the Mac—or use Mac OS X's Grab utility). Save this screen capture in a web image format (GIF, JPEG, or PNG) and load it in Dreamweaver as a tracing image. If you have a graphics program available, you can crop the web page design out of the browser so that you have only the web page visible in your image. Lay the page out by using layout tables and table cells.
