It means that the cell spans two columns instead of one. You have to use it in the <td></td> tags, not in <table></table>. Without colspan, every cell has the same width: ______ ______ ______ |______|______|______| |______|______|______| |______|______|______| If you use colspan = 2 for the first cell in the second row, it will look like this: ______ ______ ______ |______|______|______| |____________.|______| |______|______|______| Now, the first cell in the second row uses two columns instead of one and there's only two cells in the second row (instead of three). Same with rowspan: ______ ______ ______ |______|______|______| |______|______| | |______|______|______| (last cell spans two rows instead of one)

Remember to drop (leave out or remove) the tds (or ths) you are spanning across. For reference: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_colspan.asp
