Using Center, Table, TR, TH, TD tags and the ColSpan attribute, write the HTML for a table which will be displayed as:
|9.00||Enrol||2.00||Practical session||10.00||Review||2.00||Practical session|
|10.00||Introduction||5.00||Discussion||11.00||Further problems||4.00||End of course|
Note: There are two approaches to this — if you have time you might try both. The above example uses a single table. A second way using multiple tables produces output like this:
|4.00||End of course|
For multiple tables it may help to draw yourself a diagram before plunging into the HTML — or maybe just looking at the lines will make everything clear. It may also help to work from the inside out. Don't worry about all the lines — using CSS you can get rid of them.
The Center tag will centre the table, but it will probably? also centre all the table elements — depending on your browser. Don't worry about that: I'll talk about DocType in Session 5 which should make things clearer!
To see the HTML I used to produce these two tables, right-click on the page (Control Click on a Mac) and on the drop-down menu click View Source or View Page Source.
