SATURDAY EVENING (BONUS SESSION) Working with Tables 171 added includes two un-spanned cells and one spanned cell that spans three cells (2 + 3 = 5). Spanning Table Rows The ROWSPAN attribute can be used to span rows within a table. Span- ning table rows works similarly to spanning columns, except that the cells spanned run down a column (rather than across in a row).
