Today we created a bunch of tables

in the dim dark past, way back in the early parts of this century, people used tables extensively for page layout; putting headers, navigation bars, content and footers into various cells. now, of course, we would use CSS, but its inportant to realise that there are plenty of table based pages still out there - some of which you might have to work on in the future.

tables are still very useful for displaying tabular data in a spreadsheet like layout. things like telephone lists.

to see how tables work have a look at the html code tutorial on tables - the navigation's a bit iffy, but it's worth ploughing through up to and including the css background section; just click on the next page link on each page

for more: see the w3schools tables page
