Why would we want to “section off” tables with the
<tbody> tag together with the
<tfoot>tags (which you will learn about in the next two exercise) give our tables semantic meaning. These tags stand to improve the user experience in a number of ways:
- enhanced screen reading experience for the visually impaired
<tfoot>information can be shown on each page for printing
- with a bit of CSS,
<tfoot>information can be seen while scrolling through long tables.
