Colspan across 2 columns - Learning HTML


#1

I’m confused about the request here when there are none of the same values in the columns.
https://www.codecademy.com/courses/learn-html-tables/lessons/tables/exercises/colspan?action=lesson_resume&course_redirect=learn-html

The question puzzles me. Please help!! :pray:t4:

Did you check the hint? Adding a colspan=“2” to any of the TD’s will make the table go awry. The hint suggests we undo that.


#3

I’ll take another look. Colspan 2 didn’t seem to make any sense inserted in there at all. I didn’t see one but I’ll look again.


#4

They want you to insert it and see for yourself how it doesn’t make any sense… Applied that way. Read between the lines…


#5

There’s no colspan in there at all. I tried adding then deleted and I still got wrong answer. Aargh


#6

Add, but don’t delete.


#7

Yes I did that and it didn’t make sense, then I erased the code and can still not progress.


#8

It’s not supposed to make sense, that is the idea. It should still pass, though.

The author wanted you to see this.


#9

Yes that’s what I saw. Then it said remove the code which I did and I was unable to progress to the next exercise. I thought I made that clear with the previous statement.


#10

Actually no that’s not what I saw. I still cNt work out how to get that across from looking at the first example without seeing it carried across. I’ll keep trying. Thanks for your help


#11

I’ve just seen the right way to do it and that’s what I inserted multiple times so there must be a bug in the system


#12

Ah ok. I left the original second bracket in. Lightbulb!


#13

#14
