Adding Table Cells
Along with the table and tr elements, the table data element comprises the three essential building blocks of any table (see Example 4-4).
Example 4-4. A table with a single table row and three columns
<table width="90%" border="1" cellspacing="5" cellpadding="5"> <tr> <td></td> <td></td> <td></td> </tr> </table>
Because you have all the necessary building blocks, this table displays in a web browser without any additional help (see Figure 4-5).
