Used together with the tr, th and td tags to create sets of aligned columns of text and images in a document. The table tags determine the structure of the columns. The tags separate content into columns.
The number of columns for the row set must be specified by the columns attribute. If the actual number of columns in a row is less than the value specified by the columns attribute, the row will be effectively padded with empty columns. The orientation of the table depends on the language. For left-to-right languages, the leftmost column is the first column in the table. Columns are added to the right side of a row to pad left-to-right tables. Columns are added to the left side of a row to pad right-to-left table.
