Thead & tbody
If you want, you can leave your tables like this, but if you appreciate content that are highly semantically structured I am glad to introduce you to the <thead> element. The <thead> element structures the headings in your table and this tells browsers what e.g. each column contains. The <tbody> element structures all of the content, so that the browser knows what the actual content of the table is. Using the same example as before, the <thead> and the <tbody> elements are to b used like this:
<table border="1" width="100%"> <thead> <tr> <td>Row 1, cell 1</td> <td>Row 1, cell 2</td> <td>Row 2, cell 3</td> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <td>Row 2, cell 1</td> <td>Row 2, cell 2</td> <td>Row 2, cell 3</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Row 3, cell 1</td> <td>Row 3, cell 2</td> <td>Row 3, cell 3</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Row 4, cell 1</td> <td>Row 4, cell 2</td> <td>Row 4, cell 3</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
Additionally, there is one more element I would like to introduce to you – the <th> element. This tag, which stands for table cell heading, is to be used instead of the <td> element when the content of the cell is a heading instead of actual cell data.
This means that it is the obvious choice inside the <thead> element (which should contain e.g. the first row of your table) but you can also use it for the very first column to indicate the headings - table row headers.
Let’s look at an example – it is very similar to the previous but I have used meaningful content to make clear to you how to use the <th> element.
<table border="1" width="100%"> <thead> <tr> <th>Fruits</th> <th>Vitamin A</th> <th>Vitamin C</th> </tr> </thead> <tbody> <tr> <th>Apples</th> <td>98 ui</td> <td>8.4 mg</td> </tr> <tr> <th>Oranges</th> <td>295 ui</td> <td>69.7 mg</td> </tr> <tr> <th>Bananas</th> <td>76 ui</td> <td>10.3 mg</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
As you probably notice when you try out the examples yourself, you cannot see any difference. This is because the thead, tbody, and the tableheadings only add semmantic value. But you can always use CSS to style your table and then these elements actually make the styling easier!
