HTML | <td> rowspan Attribute

  • Last Updated : 31 Oct, 2019

The HTML <td> rowspan Attribute is used to specify the the number of rows a cell should span. That is if a row spans two rows, it means it will take up the space of two rows in that table. It allows the single table cell to span the height of more than one cell or row. It provides the same functionality as “merge cell” in the spreadsheet program like Excel.
