HEAD OF THE TABLE
To make our table look a little more like a table, we’ll use the
<thead> and <tbody> tags
These go within the <table> tag and stand for table head and table
The <head> HTML tag contains information about a web page
The <body> tag contains the contents of the web page.
The <thead> tag can be thought of as containing information about a
table and the <tbody> tag containing the actual tabular data.
We have just added a <thead> tag above the <tbody>.
It will hold the heading for each column.
NAMING YOUR TABLE
Our table is missing a little.
We want to add a title row that goes all the way across the
To do so, we need to use the colspan attribute for the <th>
By default table cells take up 1 column
If we want a table cell to take up the space of 3 columns
instead of 1 ,we can set the colspan attribute to 3
STYLE THE TABLE
Your table is starting to look great, but it's still a little bland.
We've gone ahead and added some styling to the table to make it a bit
easier to read.
It's your job to add the finishing touches!
Code cannot be give because of the number of lines if needed can be
requested through mail.
INTRODUCTION TO DIV TAG, SPAN.
‘DIV’ide and conquer
One of the most versatile structure tags available to you is
the <div></div> tag
Short for “division “ ,<div> allows your page into containers
(that is, different pieces).
This will come in handy when you begin learning CSS in the
next coming classes where you’ll be able to style different
parts of your website individually
HOW TO LINK THEM ?
<div style="width:50px; height:50px; background-color:red"></div>
<div style="width:50px; height:50px; background-color:blue"></div>
<div style="width:50px; height:50px; background-color:green"></div>
<a href="www.google.co.in"><div style="width:50px; height:50px; background-
The code in the above slide divides the web page into four parts
Each part has its own colour and size.
But the yellow colour in the web page when you click it goes to the
That is linking is done through the <a></a> tags very important tags
in the webpage design.
• <span> allows you to control styling for smaller parts of your page,
such as text
• For example , if you always want the first word of your paragraphs
to be red
• You can do it by wrapping each first word in <span></span> tags .
SAMPLE CODE FOR SPAN
<p>This text is black, except for the word <span
With this we have completed major elements in web designing
without adding any decoration or animation we can say effects in
later slides I will discuss about them clearly relating to the HTML
