Table captions tell your visitor what the table is for. The <caption> element, created just
for this purpose, displays the text inside the tag as the table caption (usually centered

arate file, automatically number them, or treat them in special ways simply because
If you don't want a caption, it's optional. If you just want a table
and don't care about a label, leave the caption off.
