Formatting tables

Optional, the first line of the table markup may contain certain table formatting such as border, width, alignment, bgcolor, cellpadding and cellspacing. Width may be specified in percent or in pixels. Colors may be specified either as named colors or HTML codes. Cellpadding is the space between cell contents and the sides of the cell; cellspacing is the space between cells.

Example 1. Changing border and alignment.

This markup:

    || border=10 align=center
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||

creates this table:

cell 1cell 2cell 3
cell 1cell 2cell 3

Example 2. Changing color.

This markup:

    || border=1 bgcolor=red align=center
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||

creates this table:

cell 1cell 2cell 3
cell 1cell 2cell 3

Example 3. Changing width with percent.

This markup:

    || border=1 width=100% bgcolor=yellow
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||

creates this table:

cell 1cell 2cell 3
cell 1cell 2cell 3

Example 4. Changing width with pixels and color with HTML.

This markup:

    || border=1 width=350 bgcolor=#CCCCCC align=center
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||

Example 5. Changing cellpadding.

This markup:

    || border=1 
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||

cell 1cell 2cell 3
cell 1cell 2cell 3

Example 6. Changing cellspacing.

This markup:

    || border=1 width=350 cellspacing=10 align=center
    || cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3 ||
