Unfortunately, not all browsers support tables. However, tables can contain a wide variety of information, such as headers, anchors, lists, paragraphs, forms, images, preformatted text and even nested tables.

Tables have rows and columns. HTML specifies tables by rows moving from left to right and from top to bottom.

HTML tables are composed of cells. Information is contained in each cell. You can have empty cells. Cells can span multiple rows and multiple columns.

This may sound complicated, but fortunately HTML makes it simple. Start out with the <TABLE> tag, which tells HTML you are starting a table. Always end your table with the </TABLE> tag. Information about the table must be placed between the two markers, <TABLE> and </TABLE>.

Let's learn how to add information to an HTML table by looking at the <CAPTION> tag.
