I have just begun on my quest to learn HTML. I have started my webpage and have learned the very basiceg how to set background colours, insert images and basic text formatting. Know I need to learn how to create tables. I have found a couple of tutorials but they just dont seem to be helping me do what I want.
Basically I dont want anything spectacular, just a simple table with a column on the left hand side for links etc and a bigger column to the right of that for the main text. Does anybody know of any beginners tutorials on how to do this or got any tips themselves?
Here's something to get you going First you need to tell the browser there's a table there, so insert this tag: <table> If you want a border then insert the border tag as well: <table border> Next, you'll need to let the browser know each time you want a new row to begin, so insert: <tr> End your row with the </tr> tag. Not all browsers need that, but some do, so include it. It's also not strictly necessary to end the table with: </table> but some browsers will display a blank page if they don't see an end tag.
Here then, is the full code for a two row table, with font size inserted.
<td style="font-size : 10pt;">Row 1 Column1</td>
<td style="font-size : 10pt;">Row 1 Column2</td>
<td style="font-size : 10pt;">Row 2 Column1</td>
<td style="font-size : 10pt;">Row 2 Column 2</td>
Does that help? It isn't always easy to get the forum pages to display html code in the right way, but you get the idea I'm sure.
Yes that helps a lot, just what I was looking for.Thanks a lot for that. I have just started to use a html editor called 1st page 2000. I think it is absolutely fantastic, maybe it is because I have never used one before but it helps so much. I like the fact that you still get to learn the HTML code as you go. It is so much quicker than just using notepad, which is what I was doing at the beginning.
I am sure I will be on here again looking for help before long, but once my web page is getting anywhere near finished I will post the link on here so I can get some comments on layout, content etc.
