HTML Tables and Line Breaks

Post by Nathan Sok » Wed, 10 Nov 2004 11:57:03


I have an HTML table, and would like to know how to place the next element
immediately below it. I thought that the BR tag was supposed to do this, but
I had to use multiple BR tags before the next element appeared on the next
line. This may work as a temporary workaround, but it makes it somewhat of a
pain to update the table if I add more rows. I suspect that this has
something to do with the table being a block element and the BR and text
being inline elements. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

HTML Tables and Line Breaks

The simplest way would be to set the display attribute to block, which would
force everything following the table to come below.

<table style="display:block;">...</table>

Knowingly your affinity for HTML-only solutions (8^), I suggest putting your
element inside another table with its width set to 100%, no padding, etc.
The outer table would block anything from showing up to the right of the
inner table.

<table width="100%" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td>
<table> ... </table>
</td>
</tr>
</table>

Good luck!
