Tables are used to display information in an orderly manner. Incidentally, here we are not talking furniture. A table means tabular representation of certain data on your computer screen or in printed form.

Step 8:

Ideally, a table consists of rows and columns. Mathematically, every table has at least one row, and at least one column.

In an empty square box, even if you don't see multiple vertical and horizontal lines, there is at least one row and at least one column.

So when we are defining a table, there are three tags that are deeply involved in the entire tabular configuration. The chief tag

kindles the initiation. Then we have the child tag, namely, which brings on the row, and the last, but not the least, we have a grandchild tag here, which originates a column.

The legal sequence of these three tags goes like this:

The information you want to show off about.

Where n can be any positive number. Within every
, there can be n numbers of , and within every , there can be n numbers of . Then you can have nested tables. For instance, within a single cell of nth row and mth column, you can have more tables.

Note: If the upper row has a single column, and the preceding one has multiple columns, its better to define the single-columned row in a separate table

Let's promenade through a day-to-day example. Let us create a tiny table displaying your marks in English, Mathematics and Philosophy, in two semesters and see how it fairs on your upcoming web page. Don't get intimidated by so many tags and their attributes - once you are able to create and apprehend the architecture of one table, you'll be able to create any kind of table.

Note: Within we can insert comments so that we can keep account of complex HTML coding. Literally, you insert the comments like this - Less-than sign, exclamation mark, dash dash, space, you comment, space, dash dash, greater-than sign.

The code:

My Marks












If you want to discern what these lines do, save, and refresh your page.

WIDTH="100%" means a particular table should cover the entire width of your computer screen, and a particular column should cover the entire width of the table containing it. means the column is covering only 25% space of the stipulated table.

If framesets are bad practice, how do you accomplish the same thing without them? I want one html page with a left nav that loads different content into the right. I heard having multiple html pages is also really old school. Any good front-end solutions?


Admin 02.12.2011. 15:53

Many different ways!
The trend is to make two divs, and update one div at a time, under AJAX. This resuts in a site with "One page", unless some calls lead to a new file.
See some examples at, php modules tab. Many use AJAX.
You could have a one page site (index.php) with five divisions: header (logo), horiznavbar (below the logo), submenu (below the navbar, left), main (your main contents), footer (bottom)
The horiznavbar will call OTHER pages (such as contact form, legals, etc...), and this will refresh the whole screen, while the submenu on the left will make AJAX calls to refresh ONLY the "main" division.
You can also see an example (tabulated design) one the "Table v div challenge" (bottom of the screen...) that is a typical "one page" site...

How do I combine my PDF files(resume) from several separate pages to one for emailing purposes? I converted my resume to PDF but it stored each page individually. I wish to be able to email it as only one attachment though not three separate pages, is that possible? Thanks.


Admin 08.07.2008. 08:00

I'm assuming you are using a PC; Simple PDF Merger is a free tool

PDF Redirect is free too

How can I make my DeviantArt profile page more cool and unique? I want to make it more personalized. Is there any way I can do that? What are some html codes and other stuff I can do it make it more personalized?


Admin 20.08.2012. 04:31

Hello, fellow Deviant! (: I've got some things you could use to personalize your page.

You could add stamps. They're not for only premium membership subscribers anymore(:.
Find a bunch of stamps that you like. Then go to the right side of the page, and under the 'Favorites'/'Download' buttons, there should be a small arrow. Click on it, and find the thumb code. Copy and paste it into your About Me, or your Deviation/Favorites boxes. Keep doing that until you've got all the stamps you'd like.

You could also add gif's to your page, by entering this code,


Get the direct link (ends in .png, .gif, .jpg, and so on), and paste it where it says "Enter direct photo/gif link here". You can do this as many times as you'd like, also in the Deviation/Favorites/About Me boxes.

You can also add YouTube videos. Enter this code (into Deviation/Favorites/About Me boxes),

So, for example, if I were to want to embed this video

I would take the numbers/letters that came after 'watch?v=' (in my case, it would be n1ZdtrobBKw) and paste them where it says "VIDEO ID GOES HERE'.

Just a heads up, putting a ton things like that on your page WILL make it lag.

Sorry if this was confusing at all, heh. Have fun customizing your page! (:

Please read the recommendations below. Also, go to the book store and locate the book "Weight Training for Dummies". In chapter 15 you will find excellent information on how to perform abdominal exercises correctly. Page 218 of the book dispels all the myths surrounding abdominal training.

The following healthy living recommendations will help you if you?re trying to lose weight, tone up your muscles, have aspirations of building lean muscle mass, are attempting to get a wash board stomach, or just want to feel better:

*1) Burn more calories then you're consuming everyday and measure your results using the following formula: Calories Consumed minus Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) minus Physical Activity minus the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF). A website that explains this formula in more detail and will help you determine how many calories you need to reach or maintain a certain weight is at

Get a diet and fitness calculator that you can put on your computer or cell phone. This will allow you to easily calculate the above formula, set goals, log your daily calorie consumption, and register your physical activities.

Set realistic goals for your ideal body weight. Here are two websites that will calculate a suggested body weight:

It is difficult and unhealthy to lose more than one or two pounds per week. There are 3,500 calories in a pound. If you eat 500 fewer calories per day for a week you will lose one pound. If you burn through exercise 500 more calories per day for a week you will lose one pound.

*2) Eat natural and organic foods found on earth versus something created by a corporation to make money. Eat meals in small portions throughout the day and take a good multi-vitamin supplement.

Avoid ?High Glycemic Load Carbs? (sugar, pastries, desserts, refined starches such as breads, pasta, refined grains like white rice; high starch vegetables such as potatoes) and drink lots of water. Read this article for more information on high GL Carbs:

Do not try fad diets or diet pills. Here is an excellent food pyramid that anyone can follow:

*3) Exercise on most days by doing cardiovascular training and/or resistance training activities.

Read a book or find a certified trainer to make sure your doing all resistance training exercises correctly. A great book to buy that teaches you the resistance training basics is ?Weight Training for Dummies?. A superb magazine to buy with resistance training routines that will not get you bored is "Muscle and Fitness". Signup for the free newsletter. An excellent free online resource is at

A good book to buy that teaches you the cardiovascular training basics is ?Fitness for Dummies?.

*4) Get plenty of sleep. Sleep experts say most adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night for optimum performance, health, and safety.

*5) Educate yourself continually on health issues and make a life long commitment to good health. A great free publication is ?Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005?. A superb book to read is ?You The Owner?s Manual?. An excellent periodic publication is the ?Nutrition Action Health Letter?. A reputable test you can take to measure your biological age is at

Look at all areas where you can enhance your health. For example, make improvements in the quality of the air you breathe. Review outdoor air quality forecasts where you live and get an indoor air purifier. Send me an email or yahoo instant message to "gainbetterhealth" if you want an indoor air purifier recommendation and if you have any questions.

*Click on all the source links below to get the full benefit of the recommendations. The answers presented to your health questions are not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health providers with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.

How can I stop unwanted ad on my yahoo signed in page? Sometime some unwanted ad comes to my signed yahoo page that I don't want. I want to stop them.

Download and install the latest Firefox browser:

Install "adblock plus":

Result: no more annoying ads! And pages are loading much quicker too...:-) - this adblocker for the IE (and other browsers) gets highly recommended in several forums. - for Safari Mac - another solution for Safari 4 Win and Mac.

I for one have the Firefox installed and don't see a single ad and/or pop-up on the Yahoo pages and on most other web sites...:-)
