Creating a Text Table

(Tutorial 4 in Textbook)

You will now construct a table to display the picture, description, and cost of your gifts. Open one of the six text documents created for each category. You will create a template that will then be copied to your other five text documents. With your text document open in Notepad, place your cursor after <H1 ALIGN=CENTER>Name of Your Category</H1> and press the enter key to place the general syntax for your graphical table on a blank line. You want a table that has three columns and six rows. Type the following code, using indentations for organization, that tells the computer you are building a table with the above specifications:

<TABLE>

<TR>

<TD>First Cell First Row</TD>

<TD>Second Cell First Row</TD>

<TD>Third Cell First Row</TD>

</TR>

<TR>

<TD>First Cell Second Row</TD>

<TD>Second Cell Second Row</TD>

<TD>Third Cell Second Row</TD>

</TR>

<TR>

<TD>First Cell Third Row</TD>

<TD>Second Cell Third Row</TD>

<TD>Third Cell Third Row</TD>

</TR>

<TR>

<TD>First Cell Fourth Row</TD>

<TD>Second Cell Fourth Row</TD>

<TD>Third Cell Fourth Row</TD>

</TR>

<TR>

<TD>First Cell Fifth Row</TD>

<TD>Second Cell Fifth Row</TD>

<TD>Third Cell Fifth Row</TD>

</TR>

<TR>

<TD>First Cell Sixth Row</TD>

<TD>Second Cell Sixth Row</TD>

<TD>Third Cell Sixth Row</TD>

</TR>

</TABLE>

Save your word document and open it in a browser. To get a better understanding of what the codes above mean, refer to the table below.

<TABLE> Begins table
<TR> Begins table row
<TD> Begins table data
</TD> Ends table data
</TR> Ends table row
</TABLE> Ends table

Notice the words that appear in your table. Before deleting the words, you will work on the appearance of your table because the table definitely lacks aesthetic value. Return to your text document that contains the table template and you will now change the appearance of the table itself. Locate the beginning of your table tag (<TABLE>) and change it to read:
