Join Bill Weinman for an in-depth discussion in this video Aligning images with tables, part of XHTML and HTML Essential Training.
So, we've looked at how you present tabular data using tables, and now we're…going to look at how you align visual elements using a table, how you assemble…pieces of an image so it all looks like one image.…This is a very common technique.…I still prefer to do it with tables.…I think it's easier, and I think it falls well within what tables were designed to do.…So, this is how you align visual elements using tables.…If you're interested in how to do this using CSS, I'm working on another…course on CSS positioning, which you will also find on lynda.com, which will…show how to do it that way.…
In this case, we are doing this with tables, and this is how it's done.…Here we have an XHTML document with a table, and this is the table.…You'll notice it says border=0, cellspacing=0, cellpadding=0.…Again, you can do this part with CSS, if you prefer, but the idea is that you…want to turn off all of that spacing stuff that tables normally do, so that the…images butt right up against each other and create one big image.…
