Inserting a table is a page layout tool that can help with the look and feel of your page. It allows you to divide up into sections all or a part of the body of your web page. You can then organize information into the various "cells" of the table. Tables are especially useful for displaying information in chart or spreadsheet form, like comparison charts, product/service pricing, or schedules.
A good example of how you can use a table is the OurChurch.Com Hosting Packages and Plans page. As you can see from the screenshot below, a table is used to organize the information about OurChurch.Com's hosting packages:
*Tip: While tables can be very helpful at times allowing you to better control the layout of the content of your pages, tables can also cause a page to become disorganized. If you use tables for something other than a chart, be careful that it doesn't end up cluttering up the page. A clear eye-path (visitors knowing where to look and in what order to read things) can greatly affect a visitor's experience.
