HTML Headers

In many table situations you'll find that you want to give a column or row a "title". In our table example, we might want to indicate that the columns are for names and telephone extensions. To do this we'll add two more cells at the top of the table using the <TH ...> (Table Header) tag:

<TABLE BORDER=2>
<TR><TH>Name</TH> <TH>Extension</TH> </TR>
<TR> <TD>Raha Mutisya</TD> <TD>1493</TD> </TR>
<TR> <TD>Shalom Buraka</TD> <TD>3829</TD> </TR>
<TR> <TD>Hallie Curry</TD> <TD>8372</TD> </TR>
<TR> <TD>Shari Silberglitt</TD> <TD>4827</TD> </TR>
</TABLE>

which gives us

NameExtension
Raha Mutisya1493
Shalom Buraka3829
Hallie Curry8372
Shari Silberglitt4827

<TH ...> can be used to create headers for either rows or columns, or both.

<TABLE BORDER=2>
<TR> <TD>&nbsp;</TD>
<TH>10 am - noon</TH>
<TH>noon - 2 pm</TH>
<TH>2 pm - 4 pm</TH>
 </TR>
<TR><TH>Monday</TH>
 <TD>Home Ec</TD>
 <TD>Math</TD>
 <TD>Geography</TD>
<TR><TH>Wednesday</TH>
 <TD>History</TD>
 <TD>Social Studies</TD>
 <TD>P.E.</TD>
<TR><TH>Friday</TH>
 <TD>Music</TD>
 <TD>Peace Studies</TD>
 <TD>Sleep</TD>
</TABLE>

creates this table which uses <TH ...> to head both rows and columns:

  10 am - noon noon - 2 pm 2 pm - 4 pm
Monday Home Ec Math Geography
Wednesday History Social Studies P.E.
Friday Music Peace Studies Sleep
