How to group header content of a table using HTML5 ?

In this article, we define to group the header content in a table by using the <th> tag in HTML to set the header cell of a table. Two types of cells in an HTML table.

  • Header Cell: It is used to hold the header information.
  • Standard Cell: It is used to hold the body of data.

The working of both tags (<th> and <td>) are same but the text properties are different. In <th> tag, text is bold and centered, and in <td> tag, text is regular and left align by default.

Syntax:

<th> Contents... </th>
