Why use a table?
Sometimes you want to arrange things side by side.
in the example above i have 3 objects spaced apart from each other.. the only way to do this is either to put lots of blank spaces in between (bad idea!) with the special character or put them in a table (good idea!)
Tables: Sometimes, as in the example above, you may want to line things up side by side. This requires the use of a table.
|the table above has border=0||this table has border=1|
|the table above has one row||this table has 3 rows|
|the table above is width=95%||this table is width=15% and align=left|
a table can be aligned to the left or right of the screen, it can have a width expressed either as an exact number of pixels or as a percentage of the screen.
the tags used to make a table are:
<table> to start it and </table> to end it
<tr> to start a table row, </tr> to end row
<td> to mark each piece of table data, </td> to end data
