Rowspan is used to make a cell as tall as a number of adjacent cells. Click on the number by the tag to see the table form.
1. <table border=2> <td rowspan=3></td>
4. <tr> <td> </td> </tr></table>
Note that when your table only has one cell on the left, the abbreviated code shown above will always work. There is no <tr> until you are naming the second row in the right hand side of the table.
In all other cases, to make a cell span more than one row, you simply add 'rowspan = #' to your td tag and omit that cell in the proper number of subsequent rows. To see the exact code that is making the tables below, click on "CODE". I left a blank line where the cell would appear in the second and third rows.
PC users whose browser "sees" the table instead of the code can right click to view source code.
