Tables are really the only way to get information into a column format on a Web Page. Creating Tables for your web page is really easy.

There are only three basic container tags that have to be used with Tables. The three tags are <TABLE>, <TR>, and <TD>. Each of these tags can have various attributes, but we will cover that in Part 2 of this article.

The <TABLE> tag begins a Table and the </TABLE> tag ends the table. A table is made up of columns and rows creating cells.

The <TR> tag begins a row of the table and </TR> tag ends the row. A row can have as many columns as you want and different rows do not have to have the same number of columns. I have found that the </TR> tag is not really needed

The <TD> tag begins a cell in the row of a table and </TD> tag ends the cell in the row. The </TD> tag is not really needed either.

Example The following Table code would create the table below it.

<TR><TD>Page<TD>Section< TD>Number
<TR><TD>5B<TD> Sect. A<TD>20
<TR><TD>2A<TD>Sect. B<TD>10
<TR><TD>13C<TD>Sect. B<TD>12


5BSect. A20
2A Sect. B10
13CSect. B12

Part Two of this article will cover, the Varous attributes that can be used with the <TABLE> <TR> and <TD> tags.
