HTML and CSS Reference
In-Depth Information
You're not limited to one set of colspan or rowspan attributes in a table.
For example, if you wanted to add another heading that would span both the
Atlantic and Pacific Division headings in the previous example, you would code
it this way:
<th colspan=”4”>First Quarter</th>
Notice that the colspan attribute is set to the maximum number of columns in
the table.
As you can see from the code, the rowspan
attribute is placed in the first <th> tag, and
followed by a <td> tag, instead of another
<td> tag. The next table row contains the
other spanned content. The process then
repeats for the second rowspan attribute.
