Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Defining table headers, part of HTML: Building Tables.
- So far we've looked at three basic structural table tags:…the table element, the table row element,…and the table data element.…In this movie I wanna introduce another structural tag…that can enhance the meaning of tables…and that would be the table header tag.…So to show that off I'm gonna be working with…the tables file this time from the 01_06 folder.…Now in this case if I open this up in the browser.…Again it's not a great looking table but you can see…all the basics elements are there.…We got a caption, we've got table cells,…we've got table rows.…
But there's one thing that kind of stands out…and that is the first table row.…Tag, name, and description.…So those are headings if you will…that identify the content below them.…So everything in the first column is a tag,…everything in the second column is the name of the tag,…and everything in the third column is…the description of those tags.…So there needs to be a way to identify that top row…as not being actual table data but instead…headings that refer to the data itself…
