If you want to add column headers to a table, you need to use "th" elements instead of "td" elements in the first row of the table. "th" elements are displayed in bold and centered by default.

Below is a tutorial example of adding column headers to a table:

<?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>Column Headers</title>
 </head>
 <body>
  <h4>Online Order</h4>
  <table border="1" width="300">
<tr><th>Description</th><th>Qty</th><th>Price</th></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>

If you save the above document as column_headers.html, and view it with Internet Explorer, you will see that the first row is displayed as column headers as shown below:
