HTML, which stands for HyperText Markup Language, is the predominant markup language for web pages. HTML is the basic building-blocks of webpages.]
Sometimes if I want to do something more than blogspot lets me do easily, I google for the html code. I'm working on a post with a long table and so I googled to get reminded how to do that. I've done it a couple of times and it's not that hard, though it can be time consuming.
This time I found a page at Quackit with an HTML Table Generator.
All you have to do is type in the number of columns and rows you want and it spits out code to cut and paste into your blog. Then you can erase the contents of the table (it says 'table cell' in each cell) and fill it in. Here's a screenshot from their page.
As you can see, you can change the width of the table, the space between cells and the border width. Play around to see how it works. "More colors" takes you to a page that shows all the color codes in html.
Then you just
- copy the html (down on the bottom of the page you generate at Quackit)
- go to your blogspot post page
- click on the Edit HTML tab at the top right of the post box
- paste the code where you want the box in the text.
|Table Cell||It starts with||Table Cell||In every cell|
|Table Cell||But you can||delete||and type|
|Table Cell||what you||want in||the cells|
There are some tricky parts. You need more skills to make longer or shorter cells, though just typing in will widen a cell. Play with the space key until you get things to fit right.
