The <TD> Tag

The TD tag is used to create cells within TABLES. All TD tags must be closed with a </TD>, and be used within a table structure such as:

        here is some text in a cell
The TD tag allows you to set the following attributes:
  • BGCOLOR="#FF0000" would set the background color to red.
  • ALIGN="CENTER" centers the contents of the cell. You can also set ALIGN equal to LEFT or RIGHT.
  • VALIGN=TOP pushes the content of the cell to the top of the cell. You can also specify VALIGN=BOTTOM or VALIGN=MIDDLE.
  • COLSPAN=2 indicates that this cell spans two columns of the table.
  • ROWSPAN=3 causes the cell to span three rows of the table.
  • WIDTH=250 sets the width of the cell to 250 pixels. (you can also use percentages such as WIDTH="25%" to set the WIDTH)
