Hour 12. Displaying Data In Tables > Creating a Table for Data

Creating a Table for Data

Let's begin exploring tables by adding to your web page a table that will hold some data. Examples of this type of table are a phone list of people in your company or class at school, an ocean tide table with times and tide levels, and a recipe with amounts and ingredients. This type of table usually has a border around the cells, although it doesn't have to. Generally, tables used for page layout purposes, explored next hour, have the table borders turned off.

Adding a Table to a Web Page

Dreamweaver has two modes, enabling you to create tables in two different ways. When Dreamweaver is in Standard mode, you insert a table by using the Table object and set the number of rows and columns in the Table dialog box. In Layout mode, you can draw tables and table cells by using the cursor. You set which mode you are in by clicking one of the buttons in the Layout category of the Insert bar or by selecting View, Table Mode. For this hour, make sure you are in Standard mode and not Layout mode. You should not see a colored bar with the title Layout Mode across the top of the Document window. You'll use Layout mode in Hour 13.
