07: Tables

Tables are used in HTML to display tabular data, which can be almost anything. If you write a web application eventually you'll have to show someone a table of data. Tables might be used in an admin screen to view a list of users, or in the main UI to show people their most recent logins. If you've ever use Microsoft Excel then you've used a table.

Warm-up

Here is a table of fruits:

NameColor
AppleRed
MangoOrange
StrawberryRed
PitayaMagenta

Enter this HTML into a file (like ex07.html) and then complete the three missing rows of the table. If you can't figure it out, read the exercise, the come back and attempt it:

<table>
    <thead>
        <tr>
         <th>Name</th>
         <th>Color</th>
        <tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
        <tr><td>Apple</td><td>Red</td></tr>
    </tbody>
</table>
