  2. How can rows be made to Span many columns or rows in HTML?

  3. Explain the use of caption Tag in HTML.


Tables


Question- 1) Mention the HTML Tags used to display data in tabular form.

Answer: The <table> tag defines a table in HTML. Each table row is defined as <tr> tag. Each header is defined with <th> tag. The data in each cell in table is defined by <td> tag. By default, text in <th> is bold and centered and text in <td> is regular and left aligned.


 

Question- 2) How can rows be made to Span many columns or rows in HTML?

Answer: Cells may span in several rows and columns. This is done with the help of attributes “rowspan” and “colspan” of <th> and <td> tag.

Function of <colspan> is that it allows a single table cell to span the width of more than one cell or column. Function of <rowspan> is that it allows a single table cell to span the height of more than one cell or row.

Sometimes it makes sense for a cell to span multiple columns or multiple rows. This might be used for a header cell that titles a group of columns, or a side-bar that groups rows of entries. This is why these attributes are used and are a significant part of table in HTML.

Syntax-

<Table>
<tr><td colspan= "add_number_ofcols"></td></tr>
<tr>
     <td rowspan= "add number of rows></td></tr>
</table>

 

Question- 3) Explain the use of caption Tag in HTML.

Answer: The <caption> tag defines a table in HTML. The <caption> tag must be inserted immediately after the <table> tag.

Example of <caption> tag-

<table>
 <caption>Registration record </caption>
 <tr>
 <th>Month</th>
 <th>Number of registration </th></tr>
 <tr>
 <td>January</td>
 <td>50</td></tr>
 </table>

Output-

Registration Record

Month

Number of Registration

January

50
