Now get rid of all that stuff, bring back Tom and Rick and we'll dive into <ROWSPAN>.

<TABLE BORDER=3>

<TR>
<TD>Ed</TD>
<TD>Tom</TD>
<TD>Rick</TD>
</TR>

<TR>
<TD>Larry</TD>
<TD>Curly</TD>
<TD>Moe</TD>
</TR>

</TABLE>

Ed Tom Rick
Larry Curly Moe


As you may have guessed, <ROWSPAN> is just like <COLSPAN> 'cept y'all span rows instead of columns. (Not exactly brain surgery... is it?)

If we remove Larry and let Ed take over his cell, this is the result.

<TABLE BORDER=3>

<TR>
<TD ROWSPAN=2>Ed</TD>
<TD>Tom</TD>
<TD>Rick</TD>
</TR>

<TR>
<TD>Curly</TD>
<TD>Moe</TD>
</TR>

</TABLE>

Ed Tom Rick
Curly Moe


And of course, these attributes can also be used in combination.

<TABLE BORDER=3>

<TR>
<TD ROWSPAN=2>Ed</TD>
<TD COLSPAN=2>Tom</TD>
</TR>

<TR>
<TD>Curly</TD>
<TD>Moe</TD>
</TR>

</TABLE>
