, 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: Ifrepparttar 118051 upper row has a single column, andrepparttar 118052 preceding one has multiple columns, its better to definerepparttar 118053 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 apprehendrepparttar 118054 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 insertrepparttar 118055 comments like this - Less-than sign, exclamation mark, dash dash, space, you comment, space, dash dash, greater-than sign.

  which brings onrepparttar 118048 row, andrepparttar 118049 last, but notrepparttar 118050 least, we have a grandchild tag here, which originates a column.

The legal sequence of these three tags goes like this:

Beginning XML - Part III (Building Blocks)

Written by Amrit Hallan

XML documents (and HTML documents) are made up byrepparttar following building blocks:

Elements Tags Attributes Entities PCDATA CDATA

This is a brief explanation of each ofrepparttar 118047 building blocks:


Elements arerepparttar 118048 main building blocks of both XML and HTML documents.

Examples of HTML elements are "body" and "table". Examples of XML elements could be "my-schedule" and "date". Elements can contain text, other elements, or be empty. Examples of empty HTML elements are "hr", "br" and "img".


Tags are used to markup elements.

A starting tag like mark uprepparttar 118049 beginning of an element, and an ending tag like mark uprepparttar 118050 end of an element.


A body element: body text in between. A message element: some message in between


Attributes provide extra information about elements.

Attributes are placed insiderepparttar 118051 start tag of an element. Attributes come in name/value pairs. The following "img" element has an additional information about a source file:

The name ofrepparttar 118052 element is "img". The name ofrepparttar 118053 attribute is "src". The value ofrepparttar 118054 attribute is "computer.gif". Sincerepparttar 118055 element itself is empty it is closed by a " /".


PCDATA means parsed character data.

Think of character data asrepparttar 118056 text found betweenrepparttar 118057 start tag andrepparttar 118058 end tag of an XML element.

PCDATA is text that will be parsed by a parser. Tags insiderepparttar 118059 text will be treated as markup and entities will be expanded.


CDATA also means character data.

CDATA is text that will NOT be parsed by a parser. Tags insiderepparttar 118060 text will NOT be treated as markup and entities will not be expanded.


Entities as variables used to define common text. Entity references are references to entities.

Most of you will knownrepparttar 118061 HTML entity reference: " " that is used to insert an extra space in an HTML document. Entities are expanded when a document is parsed by an XML parser.

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 inrepparttar entire tabular configuration. The chief tag
