Styling Tables Working with CSS

CSSWeb DevelopmentFront End Technology

We can define styles for tables using CSS. The following properties are used to style <table> and its elements −

  • border

    The CSS border property is used to define border-width, border-style and border-color.

  • border-collapse

    This property is used to specify whether a <table> elements should have a shared or separate border.

  • caption

    The caption-side property is used to vertically position the table caption box.

  • empty-cells

    This property is used to specify the display of empty cells of a table.

  • table-layout To define the algorithm to be used by the browser for laying out rows, columns and cells of a table.


Example

The following examples illustrate styling of tables −
