Chapter 9. Tables >  Spanning a Cell across Columns

Spanning a Cell across Columns

With a table, it's often necessary to straddle or span one cell across a few columns. For example, with multicolumn text, you could span a headline across the columns of text.

To span a cell across two columns:

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

2.
TypeCOLSPAN=n>, where n equals the number of columns the cell should span.

3.
Type the cell's contents.

4.
Type </TD>.

5.
Complete the rest of the table. If you create a cell that spans 2 columns, you will need to define one less cell in that row. If you create a cell that spans 3 columns, you will define two less cells for the row. And so on.
