Have you ever merged cells in Excel or a Word table? If so, it's the same concept in HTML. Eg. lets say you have a table with two rows and two colimns. Now you use colspan to 'merge' the two columns in the first row: <td colspan="2"> This leaves you with one column that 'spans' the two columns in row 2
