Taking a class in HTML and given a project that is way to advanced and having tons of trouble with the really easy stuff. I can't find code for html, only css in vertical text alignment inside a table. Seems simple but? I don't know how to read css or use it in an html document and not wanting to use a css document right now. that is to advanced yet. Also looking to find a good html code and insertion point for how to change the style of a border in a table. working on recreating a regulation tennis court and can't seem to find simple html code, again just css. I understand css is for style but again, that is too advanced yet. Another issue I am having is where to enter the code once I have the solution code to my problem. Do I add it to an existing line of code or make a new one? I hope someone can help. those are just the most important questions at this time! Thanks!
although I'll bet I am not the only one who consults the equivalent css page at least ten times as often ;)
It looks as if the things you are supposed to be learning at this point are:
--setting borders on table cells (done in html with the "cellspacing" attribute in conjunction with explicit border info) --setting explicit size of table cells (using the "height" and "width" attributes) --using "colspan=" or possibly "rowspan=" depending on which way your tennis court is facing
I used the UIUC tutorial for years, but they finally shut down, darn it.
Tables can be done entirely in HTML, but oh, man, are they clunky. And there are times when only the format "style='width:somenumber'" is muscular enough to override the table's individual whims.

By the way one part of the text has to be turned on a 90 degree angle.
Are they nuts? Do they want you to learn how to make pages that say "This page will only display as intended on Browser A (versions 73 and up), Browser B (versions 34 and up, excluding 42-44), and Browser C (but only on alternate Tuesdays)" ?
