Tables, part 1. Lesson 09.

Long time ago (somewhere before year of 2005) the tables were main elements of a webpage. Webmasters make design of a webpage using many tables, nested one inside another. It was like nightmare to get logic of the plurality of tables. HTML code of these sites was very difficult to read and understand not only by programmers, but also by browsers.

Now the situation has changed dramatically. Tables play an important role. But we use tables only for things they are designed, for presenting tabular data.

Imagine following situation. Our boss set a task for us. Our artist has depicted this task in a picture format (image file) to ease understanding of the problem.

And now we have to create the same table by means of HTML and set it on our test page.

We can make this work step-by-step this way:
  1. Create tag <table> - All tables are defined with this tag. For tag <table> we use the border attribute border="1" to make the borders with 1 pixel thickness. If we do not specify a border for the table, it will be displayed without borders.
  2. Create tag <caption> - We need this tag to show a caption of a table. The <caption> tag must be inserted immediately after the <table> tag.
  3. Create tag <tr> (row) for <th> (table headings) - in our case for table heading <th> "Fats, Proteins, Carbohydrates" we use attribute colspan="3" to make a cell span 3 columns.
  4. Create 4 tags <tr> (row) for <td> cells with information - in our case for the penultimate row we use the attribute rowspan="2" to make a cell span 2 rows.
  5. Create tag </table> - this tag let a browser know where end of the table is.
