• In addition to displaying tabular data, tables have been used to support graphics
layout and design. CSS is currently the suggested method for layout, but current
inspection of sites suggests that in 2009 table -based layout is alive and well.
• The HTML 4 specification reserved the attributes datasrc , datafld ,
dataformatas , and datapagesize for future versions. However, XHTML dropped
these attributes. They are supported in Internet Explorer 4 and later. Early drafts of
the HTML5 specification introduced a datagrid , which seem to revisit these ideas,
but it was later dropped with indications it may return in future versions of HTML.
• At the time of this writing, most browsers have problems with char and charoff
attributes in all table-related tags.
• The HTML 3.2 specification defines only the align , border , cellpadding ,
cellspacing , and width attributes for the table element.
• The cols attribute might provide an undesirable result under some versions of
Netscape, which assumes the size of each column in the table is exactly the same.
<tbody> (Table Body)
This element is used to group the rows within the body of a table as defined by <tr> tags.
