CEDGE'S TABLE CHEATS
Tables are a great way to position things like text or images
and make them stay where you put them.

Each Example below is shown as it will look.
The corresponding HTML code is shown to the right.
Just highlight the code you need then copy and paste the code to your page.
Edit the underlined items to reflect your
file names, usernames, text or size requirements ...etc.
Simple easy and checked for mistakes.


Hints for Table Users

<TR> </TR> = A Row

<TD> </TD> = A Column Cell

BORDER="0" for Invisible Tables
BORDER="1" raises outer edge 1 unit
Cellspacing ="2" makes border 2 units wide

Cellpadding ="2" adds 2 units of space around cell contents

Combining the various techniques shown below will allow you
to create your own special table effects
