One of the most major problems with HTML is the lack of layout control.  HTML Tables can solve most of your problems with layout.  Microsoft FrontPage 2000 offers powerful tools to create your table.  Tables are not only used to organize data, but they are used often on the Internet to create web pages.

This How-To Article shows you how to create a table in FrontPage.  


Creating a Table

1.  Go to the page that you want to add the table to.

2.  Click the Table menu and click Draw Table from the menu that appears.

3.  Drag across the screen where you want the table to be created.

4.  Your table will now be created.  To create subsections, or more cells in the table, drag across the already created table to where you want to create the cell line.

5.  If you want to remove a cell line in a table, click the View menu, point to Toolbars, and click Tables from the menu that appears.  The Table toolbar will now open.  This Toolbar will make it easy to create and manage your tables.

6.  To remove a cell, click the eraser button from the Table toolbar.  Drag the mouse over the line you want to remove.  Once the line is highlighted red, let go of the mouse button.

Table Settings

There are a number of settings for the tables you create.  The settings discussed below can be accessed by right-clicking the table and selecting Table Properties from the menu that appears.

Figure 1.1

To select where the table is positioned on the page, select from the "Alignment" drop-down menu.  The next two important settings are Cell padding and Cell spacing.  Cell padding lets you specify how much padding is around the cells in the table.  Cell spacing lets you specify how much space is between each cell.  You can also set the width and height of the table in Table Settings.  The last major setting is Borders.  If you are using the table for page layout purposes alone, it is best to set the border size to 0, otherwise, you will see the gridlines when the page is viewed in the web browser.  If you are using the table for informational purposes, it may sometimes be helpful to have borders to separate the data.
