Part II: Design and Conquer > Advanced Table Elements and Table Design

Chapter 9. Advanced Table Elements and Table Design

In Chapter 8, “Basics Tables,” you learned the basics of table design and saw how to create tables that communicate information in rows and columns. Obviously, that’s a primary use of the XHTML table elements. In this chapter, you’ll be introduced to one of the other common uses of table tags—formatting entire pages. Using the table tags gives you some interesting options for controlling the appearance of your Web page, including the placement of paragraphs, interface controls (such as hyperlinks for different pages in your Web site), and even images. You’ll look at many of those possibilities in this chapter.

This chapter discusses the following:

  • The basics of designing a Web page with a table

  • Creating page sections, setting table widths and heights, and border appearance

  • Examples of using table design for different types of pages
