Yes, it is. You asked for a table.

The thing above was made using the <TABLE> and </TABLE> commands. That's a table because... Oh, wait -- I'll bet this is the thing you were looking for:

Marcia Jan Cindy

The Bradys Carol Alice Mike

Greg Peter Bobby

Am I right? You wanted those fancy border lines in the process so it looks like a graph or, dare I say, A TABLE?

Simple Table Commands
First things first. Let me explain the first table I showed you. The one you didn't want. It will make explaining the bordered table a whole lot easier. Here's the little program I wrote to give me the Brady family table:

<TABLE> <CAPTION>The Bradys</CAPTION> <TR> <TD> Marcia </TD> <TD> Carol </TD> <TD> Greg </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD> Jan </TD> <TD> Alice </TD> <TD> Peter </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD> Cindy </TD> <TD> Mike </TD> <TD>Bobby </TD> </TR> </TABLE>
Now, don't be put off by this little ditty. It looks rough, but look again. There are really only four commands being used again and again. Here's what we use:

y y y y y

<TABLE> starts and ends the entire thing. I think that makes perfect sense. This is a table after all. <CAPTION> and </CAPTION> places a caption over your table. The caption will be bolded and centered. Okay, it's a pretty dull caption. Use it if you'd like or feel free to forget it right here. I just thought I'd show it to you. Heck, you're here aren't you? <TR> is used when you want a new Table Row to begin. Notice that you need to end every table row with an </TR>. See that above? <TD> denotes Table Data. You put this in front of every piece of information you want in a cell. You need to end every one that you open with an </TD>. See how I have that above? </TABLE> ends the whole deal.

0 browsers and HTML 4. will be of equal size using the largest cell as the model for the others. I learned that the hard way when my tables all looked like heck when I upgraded. Note that a <TR> is needed first to start the first table row. by column. <TABLE BORDER="3" CELLSPACING="1" CELLPADDING="1"> <CAPTION>The Bradys</CAPTION> <TR> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Agnes </TD> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Wilma </TD> <TD ALIGN = "center"> George </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Gwen </TD> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Skippy </TD> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Alvin </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Harry </TD> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Melvin </TD> <TD ALIGN = "center"> Joe </TD> </TR> </TABLE> If it looks like all the work is done in the <TABLE> command -. the cells keep going to the right until you tell the computer that a new row of cells will start by using the <TR> or Table Row command. And the cells. With the advent of version 4. again. as in HTML.It used to be that all of the end TD and end TR commands were not needed. Really Fancy Table Stuff Now on to making the fancy lines between cells. and so on until you have nine cells in three rows of three. You'll need nine cells for the board right? Three across in three rows. Here.0 specs.. What Is Happening? What table commands do is create a series of cells. Please note that even though the program above has each cell (or TD) command on a new line. in life. Below is the program I used to post this is. Biggest wins. Note the code above again to see it. Remember that whatever follows the <TD> command will appear in the cell. in other words.. tables will be rendered incorrectly in Netscape browsers if the end commands are not used. Think of it as constructing a Tic Tac Toe board. is that table above: Agnes Gwen Harry The Bradys Wilma Skippy Melvin George Alvin Joe Okay. so I changed the names. use <TR> to jump to the next row. You are using three commands to do the work for you: . Please note that the commands are the same! All I did was add a few things inside of them. Use the <TD> command to make three cells across. Now they are. Nothing to it. but you get the idea. Each cell's data is denoted by the <TD> command.

Note the cell border walls tend to fill them! . Can you do other ALIGN types? Sure." Use them in combination in different cells. Sometimes bigger is better. Try different numbers. I'd keep this kind of small. Three is larger than two and two is larger than one. Try a few different settings. How about that new "ALIGN" deal in the <TD> command. See it? I have told the <TD> command I want the data that follows centered within the cell walls outlined in the TABLE command above. Set another table cell to center.y y y BORDER tells the table how large the border should be. Set one table cell to left. This is all relative in terms of pixels. BORDER=0 gets rid of the borders altogether. etc. Large spacing tends to defeat the purpose. CELLPADDING (all one word) gives the amount of space (or padding) between the cell border and the cell contents. Try ALIGN="left" and ALIGN="right. CELLSPACING (all one word) gives the amount of space between cells. I happen to like the look of BORDER=3. Save them -. A higher number fills out more.
