Hi! I have been thinking about my problem for quite a while, however my result was 0. The thing is - I'm trying to create the base of my page using tables - everything seemed to be easy until the moment, where I needed to use colspan and rowspan at the same time. Actually it's hard to explain what I want to achieve, that's why I attached an image, that ilustrates my idea. In this image I have drawn a simple table (in original it's 2 columns and 2 rows - together 4 cells) - I understand how to merge 2 columns or 2 rows with the help of rowspan and colspan, but is there a possibility to merge columns and rows at the same time, so that the only cell would be the "CELL" (look at the image) cell. Any advice appreciated.
No you can't span both rows and columns at the same time unless spanning an entire rectangular area.
Where you have a table that needs the cells arranged like that you can either span the column and repeat the column value in the bottom right cell or span the row and repeat the row value in the top left cell. Which way around you'd choose would depend on whether people are more likely to be searching the data based on the column headings or the row headings.
