Chapter 9. Tables >  Spanning a Cell across Rows

Spanning a Cell across Rows

Creating a cell that spans more than one row is essentially identical to spanning cells over more than one column—just from another direction.

To span a cell across two or more rows:

1.
When you get to the point in which you need to define the cell that spans more than one row, type <TD.

2.
TypeROWSPAN=n>, where n equals the number of rows the cell should span.

3.
Type the cell's contents.

4.
Type </TD>.

5.
Complete the rest of the table. If you define a cell with a rowspan of 2, you will not need to define the corresponding cell in the next row. If you define a cell with a rowspan of 3, you will not need to define the corresponding cells in the next two rows.
