The Caption Element1:25 with Nick Pettit
The caption element is basically a title for the table, and it should come immediately after the opening table tag. This is nice to add because it quickly summarizes what a table might contain.
- <caption> - The caption element represents the title of the table.
Last but not least, is the caption element. 0:00 This element is basically a title for the table, 0:03 and it should come immediately after the opening table tag. 0:06 This is nice to add because it quickly summarizes what a table might contain. 0:11 Some screen rating software and search engines might pick up 0:15 on a caption, which is much better than reading one 0:19 table cell at a time and using that information to 0:22 try to get an idea of what a table is about. 0:25 So, let's take a look. 0:28 So what I mean, just open up my preview so we can 0:29 take a look at what the work space should look like right now. 0:34 And let's go back to the code, and right after the opening table tag, 0:38 I'm going to type caption, and workspaces will automatically 0:44 close that for me, and inside, I'll type employee 0:50 information, because that's generally what this table contains. 0:58 Employee information. 1:02 So let me switch back to my preview, refresh the page, and now 1:04 you can see that there's this nice title up at the top of the table. 1:09 Using CSS, you can hide this caption if you'd like, but it's 1:15 nice to display it if you want a title for the table visible. 1:20
