Problem

Web pages with long, complex HTML tables take a long time to be displayed in Web browsers.

HTML tables are often used to control the layout of a page. The problem, though, is how much time it takes for Web browsers, especially older browsers, to load these tables. The browser has to calculate height and width of all the text, images, and plug-ins before anything is displayed. The end result is that the Web page feels sluggish.[1]

[1] Newer Web browsers minimize this problem by recalculating how the table should look as text and images are downloading, instead of all at once at the end. However, until you are sure that the majority of your customers have the latest Web browsers, we recommend dividing long tables into shorter ones.
