CSS Table Styling

Welcome to CSS Table Styling! In this session, we'll explore techniques to enhance the appearance and functionality of tables on your web pages.

Styling Table Elements

You can style various table elements like <table>, <tr> (rows), and <td> (cells) using CSS properties.

Styling Table Rows and Cells

Use CSS selectors like tr:nth-child(odd) and td:first-child to target specific rows or cells. Apply styles like background-color, color, and font-weight to customize their appearance.

Using Borders and Padding

Borders and padding can improve table readability and organization. Use border and padding properties to add borders and adjust the spacing within cells.

Table Background and Color

Customize the overall look of your tables by setting background colors and text colors. Use background-color and color properties.

Text Alignment in Tables

Align text within table cells using text-align property. Options include 'left', 'right', 'center', and 'justify'.

Table Header and Footer Styling

Give special styling to table headers (<th>) and footers (<tfoot>). These elements can have different background colors, fonts, and borders.

Responsive Tables

Ensure your tables are mobile-friendly using responsive CSS techniques. Use max-width and overflow-x: auto; to make tables scrollable on smaller screens.
