Tables

Tables are useful for presenting data or factual information which are needed to be presented in rows and columns

HTML tables were invented for a reason, which is to display tabular data. As long as you use tables for tabular data only, and never nest a table inside another table, you’re using them correctly and as intended.

Useful Tips

  • You should never use a table for layout or positioning content
  • Tables should be used for presenting data or factual information
  • Do not center text in a table, this could cause accessibility issues as centred text is harder to read.  The text should always be left justified
