Display content in rows and columns

Tables are a way to arrange data in rows and columns to provide a visual representation of information. They can be simple, like a roster of students and corresponding grade levels. They can also be multi-dimensional, like a multiplication matrix where the intersection of the values in a column and row is the product of the row and column header values.
