In the same way that you can split and merge individual cells , you can split and merge entire tables. You can also nest one table within another. These options might seem pretty complex for presenting straightforward information, but they offer wonderful possibilities, particularly when you want to organize an entire Web page with one table.
In this exercise you will split the Class Schedule table into three separate tables, one for each class, with each class name as the table title.
