XHTML table elements are not only a great way to present information, but a useful layout tool as well (see Figure 3.16). XHTML 1.0 expands the table elements in several important ways:
Support for rendering parts of the frame around a table, rather than "all or nothing."
Control over which boundaries to draw between cells.
Table header, body, and footer sections can be defined as separate entities.
