If you want to make your tables come alive with user friendly designs you are going to need some CSS. Cascade Style Sheet or CSS can improve the looks of any table by a lot. Without any styles, tables are very dull. Add a little bit of CSS an you have an attractive display of tabular data that would make it easier to read and understand for your visitors. Plain HTML table without CSS vs. Table with CSS without styles with styles Take a look at the first table on the left. As you can see it does not look very appealing. Sure you can see all the content perfectly and it might even make sense, but I think we can agree that the looks could be improved to make it more appealing and capture visitors attention.

Styling a table with css is a must. Too much styling does not help either Unfortunately, many people are confused when it comes to styling their tables. As a result, the styles applied are not very effective and instead of being appealing sometimes can be repealing. That is...

The good news is that if you use WordPress for your website you are in luck.
