Chapter 6. Web Page Structuring Using Ta... > Inserting and Working with Tables

Inserting and Working with Tables

If you can remember from Chapter 3, “Building a Web Page,” the development of our Dorknozzle web page was severely limited to inserting text and images in a vertically linear fashion. Elements on the page were organized such that we inserted images, followed by a line break, then either another image or text, and then repeated the process until the page looked somewhat presentable. Although this process may work for simple web pages, it does expose immediate drawbacks that become obvious when large amounts of text are added to the page. As you can see from Figure 6.1, the background image that we added to the top of the page begins to repeat itself near the bottom of the companydirectory.htm page.
