A "table" element is a block level element that you can use to present information in table of rows and columns. Here are basic rules about "table" elements:

  • "table" elements are block elements.
  • "table" elements can not have empty contents.
  • "table" elements can not have text contents.
  • A "table" element can only have "tr" or other table sub-elements.
  • "tr" elements are used in a "table" element to define rows in a table.
  • "td" elements are used in a "tr" element to define columns in a row.

Below is a tutorial example of a simple "table" element:

<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
  "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
 <head>
  <title>Simple Table</title>
 </head>
 <body>
  <h4>Online Order</h4>
  <table>
<tr><td>Description</td><td>Qty</td><td>Price</td></tr>
<tr><td>Email Account</td><td>10</td><td>$9.90</td></tr>
<tr><td>FYIcenter.com Ad</td><td>1</td><td>$99.00</td></tr>
<tr><td>1-year Access</td><td>1</td><td>$199.00</td></tr>
  </table>
 </body>
</html>
