A table is created by using <table> tag. In the <table> element the table is built row by row. A row is present in a <tr> tag, which stands for ‘table row’. And each cell is then written inside the row element using a <td> tag, which stands for ‘table data’. Each cell must have a <td> or a <th> tag to display correctly. An example is shown

<table border=”1″>

<tr>

<td>Row 1, Column 1</td>

<td>Row 1, Column 2</td>

</tr>

<tr>

<td>Row 2, Column 1</td>

<td>Row 2, Column 2</td>

</tr>
