YOUR FIRST HTML PAGE - VWritten by Amrit Hallan
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 entire tabular configuration. The chief tag kindles initiation. Then we have child tag, namely,
which brings on row, and last, but not 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 upper row has a single column, and preceding one has multiple columns, its better to define 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 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 comments like this - Less-than sign, exclamation mark, dash dash, space, you comment, space, dash dash, greater-than sign.
USER FEEDBACK, HTML FORMWritten by Amrit Hallan
After going through this celestial section you'll be able to make your own HTML feedback forms so that visitors can send you feelers about what are their intentions vis-à-vis you and your Web site, and other sundry things that may or may not concern you.
As usual we have a tag called, illuminatingly, . Whatever lies within belongs to this tag and is going to be a part of its definition as a whole.
The basic infrastructure of a user feedback form manifests itself like this:
Good! Now let us take bull by its horns, and ponder over individual parts one-by-one in a scholarly manner. An average
