<table border=X 
rowspan=X colspan=Y
Simple table draws single pixel-width border and cell-wall divisions. Omitting the border attribute, or setting border=0 creates an invisble table. Values for border greater than 1 will create a thicker border around the table/ cellpadding is the amount of space (in pixels) between the cell contents and its walls. cellspacing determines the width of the inner cell walls. <tr> are table row defintions and <td> are table data definitions (one cell). Options for the <td> tags are for horizontal and vertical alignment within the cell. The rowspan and colspan attributes can be used to create cells that stretch across more than one cell.

Use the bgcolor attribute to define a background color for a cell (inside a <td> tag ), a row (inside a <tr> tag ) or the entire table (inside a <table> tag ),
