In the exercise we need to create just two rows, but what about a situation, when we want, for example, twenty of them? Is there some command, that helps to create a big amount of table elements without making it one by one?

2 posts were split to a new topic: How can I easily align opening and closing tags?

So I’m a bit confused as to why, when adding a table you put < th /th> and then to put something next to it in the next column its <td /td> underneath and then again <td /td> if i want to put yet another thing? How does the computer know that its the next one over? Why isn’t it always just <th or <td? Why does it change once and not again? Does it matter?


<table <tr <thBananas</th <td2</td <tdIn Stock</td </tr </table

(btw i typed it like this because otherwise it makes an actual chart :joy:
