Figure 2.20 has additional padding in the table cells because the width attri-
bute sets a minimum width of 80 percent of the available space for the table,
causing the cells to be stretched horizontally.
To make even fancier tables, web developers use the rowspan and colspan
attributes. Example 2.21 illustrates these techniques.
