10.2. Basic Table Tags
You can create a wide variety of tables with only five tags: the <table>
tag, which encapsulates a table and its elements in the document's body
content; the <tr> tag, which defines a table row; the <th> and <td> tags,
which define the table's headers and data cells; and the <caption> tag,
which defines a title or caption for the table. Beyond these core tags, you
may also define and control whole sections of tables, including adding
running headers and footers, with the <colgroup>, <col>, <tbody>, <t-
head> , and <tfoot> tags. Each tag has one or more required and optional
attributes, some of which affect not only the tag itself but also related
10.2.1. The <table> Tag
The <table> tag and its </table> end tag define and encapsulate a table
within the body of your document. Unless you place them within the
browser window by stylesheet, paragraph, division-level, or other align-
ment options, the browser stops the current text flow, breaks the line,
inserts the table beginning on a new line, and then restarts the text flow
on a new line below the table.
