How Do I Span Cell horizontally?


You can combine cells in a row to make one large cell.

How to do it

To span a cell, in your <TH> or <TD> tag for the cell you want to span across columns, type COLSPAN="?".

Next replace the ? with the number of columns you want the cell to span across. Your code should look like this:

<TH COLSPAN="?">

or

<TD COLSPAN="?">

EXAMPLE

<TABLE BORDER="5">
<TR>
<TH COLSPAN="4">Football Stats</TH>
</TR>
<TR>
<TH>Team</TH>
<TH>Games</TH>
<TH>Wins</TH>
<TH>Losses</TH>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD>Eagles</TD>
<TD>5</TD>
<TD>5</TD>
<TD>0</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD>Jets</TD>
<TD>5</TD>
<TD>4</TD>
<TD>1</TD>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD>Little Giants</TD>
<TD>4</TD>
<TD>2</TD>
<TD>2</TD>
</TR>
</TABLE>



Seeing this in the browser would look like this:

Football Stats
Team Games Wins Losses
Eagles 5 5 0
Jets 5 4 1
Little Giants 4 2 2
