Chapter 24: Presenting Information in Lists and Tables


Overview

In this chapter you will learn to:

  • Create bulleted and numbered lists.

  • Create tables.

  • Enter information in a table.

  • Edit the structure of a table.

  • Format a table.

  • Split a table into separate tables.

You are probably familiar with the kinds of lists and tables you can create in applications such as Microsoft Office Word 2003 and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003.In Microsoft Office FrontPage 2003, you use similar techniques to create lists and most kinds of tables.

Lists and tables are traditionally used to present information in structured, easy-to-grasp formats. In addition, you can use tables to structure entire Web page layouts. Using tables to establish the look of an entire Web page minimizes browser display variations and gives you more control than if you depend on a non-structured presentation. For instance, you can use a table to create a Web page that is a specific height and width, and to lay out content in specific positions on the page.

In this chapter, you will learn how to create bulleted lists, numbered lists, and tables in a FrontPage Web page. First you will add lists to a few pages of The Garden Company s Web site. Then you will create tables by using three different methods :

  • By using the Insert Table button.

  • By using the Insert Table command.

  • By drawing lines to create the table s rows and columns .

By learning a variety of methods, you will be able to select the simplest method for creating your own tables in the future.
