HTML Tables, Display Settings.

HTML Tables

<table>, <tr> and <td> tags are used for creating tables, table rows and table cells, respectively. Use these properties to change their appearance. Note: the table attributes cellpadding and cellspacing have been removed from HTML5.

Display Settings

There are two different types of boxes — inline and block — that match the two types of tags — inline and block-level tags.

Block-level tags create a line break before and after it. Example block-level tags are <div>, <p>, <h1> through <h6>, <table>, <ul>, <ol>, <li>, <blockquote>, etc.

Inline tags appear in the same line as the other content around them. Example inline tags are <a>, <img>, <strong>, <em>, <i>, <cite>, <b>, <span>, <s>, etc.

To change this behavior for any tag type, modify the display property.

Donec tempus metus nec faucibus gravida. Vivamus eu ligula feugiat, pharetra massa ac, efficitur tellus. Quisque faucibus nisi aliquet congue condimentum. Praesent tellus lectus, vestibulum sit amet lacus ac, sagittis rutrum velit. Morbi tempus accumsan cursus. Morbi egestas nisi quis neque lobortis interdum. Sed tristique augue nec dignissim condimentum.

Notice that the display: none; value completely hides the element.
