Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding table captions, part of HTML: Building Tables.
- Often you may need to give users…more information about the content of a table,…or have a title that represents the table's subject.…You can do that by giving the table a caption.…So I've got the Table's file, that HTM here,…open from the 01_05 folder,…and if I were to look at this in the browser right now,…you can see I removed the default border…and just below that we have a table.…The table just kind of picks up right from scratch.…It doesn't really identify itself in any way.…
So one of the things that people will do…often to sort of identify a table,…is they'll come in and they'll add…some type of a heading…and inside that they'll title it,…like "Basic table elements."…Now there's nothing wrong with this,…and if I save this and preview it in my browser,…you can see that it shows up and it looks just fine.…There's nothing wrong with it at all.…But the problem is, now this is semantic,…and in this case in terms of HTML,…we just created a new section in our document…where the table is sort of following after that.…
