Dreamweaver and Styling Tables

Dreamweaver makes it easy to format tables. Using the Properties Inspector (shown below), you can:

  1. Set background colors for the table rows and cells.
  2. Set the width and height of columns and rows.
  3. Change the horizontal and vertical alignment of cells.

However, behind the scenes, Dreamweaver uses deprecated attributes to do all these things, which is really too bad. Browsers still support the deprecated attributes, so you can use the Properties Inspector to format tables in this way, but your HTML5 pages will not be valid. We will show you how to format tables with CSS later in the course.
