Best Practices

  • All tables should be set to 100% width.
  • Use tables to display data.
  • Display simple tables, rather than complex tables wherever possible, minimizing the use of merged cells that span more than one row or column.
  • Use the table caption tag Summary to summarize the content displayed in the table.
  • Use the table heading to identify cells that are either row or column headers. Where data is given, make sure unit values are listed in the heading row and that the unit of measure is consistent for all data points.
  • Use Column and or row headers
  • Use caption tag to display table heading
  • Use the summary section to summarize the contents and purpose of the table.
  • Simplify your tables. If you have a complex amount of information try making separate tables.
  • Do not merge cells with a table's row or columns.

Table Types

Our content management system (CMS) provides functions to define header cells during table creation without having to edit the code manually.
