NEW SERVER - 11.9.2020 ... Retiring, March 2020 - sorry, you have missed our final public course.
The Coronavirus situation has lead us to suspend public training - which was on the cards anyway, with no plans to resume

Please ask about private 'maintenance' training for Python, Tcl, Perl, PHP, Lua, etc
Happily continuing private consultancy / programming work
 
HTML tables - telling whats wrong from the display

Tips on tables .... or how to spot the bug based on what's wrong on the display.

* If text that SHOULD appear in an HTML table appears above the table, then you've not put that text in a <td>...</td> tag set; it's very common for people to add un-necessary <br> tags to move on to the next row and this shoes up as a big white gap above the table!

* If the table appears at the end of your page rather than where you want it, you've probably forgotten your </table> tag. Tables gather up information to be drawn when the end-table tag is found, and if there isn't one there ... ((By the way, if you have a Netscape browser the table won't appear at all if you leave off the </table>))

* If you wanted the table right across your browser window or frame, but it's limited in width, add a width=100% into your <table> tag.

* If you want your table headers to be bold and centred, use a <th>...</th> tag pair rather than a <td>...</td>

* If the table display isn't what you expected, add a border=1 attribute to the <table> tag for testing and debug purposes - then you'll see how the table is constructed.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
