HTML <table> tag
Updated: 04/02/2019 by Computer Hope
When writing in HTML, the <table> tag is a block element used to create a table. It is useful when you want to represent data using rows and columns. The basic elements that make up a table include <th>, <td>, and <tr>. The following sections contain information about the <table> tag, including an example of it in use, as well as related attributes and browser compatibility.
Example of <table> code
<table class="mtable2 tab">
We have added a few of our own classes to the table using CSS; this action allows us to improve its appearance.
Within an HTML tag, an attribute dictates certain aspects of an HTML element. Attributes are made up of a name and value pair; all tags support standard attributes. Every attribute that was unique to the <table> tag is deprecated. While these attributes may work with the some versions of HTML, they will eventually be phased out. You should use CSS to adjust the dimensions and appearance of this element.
