Tables give the Web Designer a lot of power in controling layout. Rember how we have discussed that monitor resolution and size will determin how an HTML document is displayed? A Table can force a layout by allowing the Web Designer to place information in a predetermined area. Once you've become familar with HTML and designing web pages you'll move on to Cascading Style Sheets and won't use tables to define your layout. But for now it's a good way to organize material on your page.

Another fun thing to do with a Table is to use it to put a "Picture Frame" around an image.
