sorry about the first i believe that the code i wrote should show up now. again sorry and hope this helps.

there are a few things that i see wrong with your code. the first being that you dont have a opening table footer block. it should go right under the table head and look like this

<tfoot></tfoot>

. then inside that you need to put a table row which looks like this

<tr></tr>

, then inside that you will need a table cell which looks like this

<td></td>

. all of the code that you will be writing will go after the table head but before the table body. hope this helps

"Looks like this" ? Did you forget to add an example?
