HTML 5 <table> Tag, Definition of <table> tag in html5

In this discussion, We will introduce about the use of <table> tag in html5. This tag is used to create the table in the html document . Simple table can have any no of <th>(table header), <tr>(table row), <td>(table cell) tag. The <caption> tag defines the title of the table and used just after the <table> tag. The <caption> tag used only once for a <table> tag. The caption by default apears centered and above the table. There is no specific attribute of this tag and "align" attribute is not supported in html5.

Declaration Syntax:

<table>Table Content </table>

This tag have a "summary" attribute which specify the summary of the table. but we avoid the use of this attribute and use caption tag if summary required.

Example:table_tag.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<title>Example of table tag</title>
</head>
<body>
<table border="1">
<caption><b> Table</b></caption>
<tr>
        <th>Employee</th>
        <th>DOB</th>
</tr>
<tr>
         <td>Gyan singh</td>
         <td>1-3-87</td>
</tr>
<tr>
        <td>Bikrant</td>
        <td>14-2-86</td>
</tr>
</table>
