HTML Tables Tutorial

Page 9 - <table> bgcolor


HTML now allows tables to have background colors of their own. By using a table background color you can improve the style of a page without increasing download time. By default a table has no background color and will have the same background color of the page. Like for the <body> tag the attribute to control background color is bgcolor.
<table border="1">
   <tr>
      <td>Cell #1</td>
      <td>Cell #2</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Cell #3</td>
      <td>Cell #4</td>
   </tr>
</table>
=
Cell #1 Cell #2
Cell #3 Cell #4

<table border="1" bgcolor="#ccccff">
   <tr>
      <td>Cell #1</td>
      <td>Cell #2</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>Cell #3</td>
      <td>Cell #4</td>
   </tr>
</table>
=
Cell #1 Cell #2
Cell #3 Cell #4
