CSS Tutorial » CSS table padding

In this chapter we show you:

Can I add padding to table?
How do you set a table padding?


CSS tables padding can adjust dimensions inside the cells. If cell padding property is not apply then it will be set as default value. The cell padding is used to define the spaces between the cells and its border.

We can add padding CSS Style as:
Inline - by using the style attribute in HTML elements
Internal - by using a <style> element in the <head> section
External - by using an external CSS Style file as style.css

 

Inline CSS and HTML Syntax:

<img style = "property:value" src = "image_link" />

 

Internal CSS and HTML Syntax:

<html>
<style>
th, td { padding: value; }
</style>
<body>
<table>
<tr>
<th>
title_text</th> <!-- each line one column -->
...
...
...
</tr>
<tr>
<td>content</td>
<!-- each line one column -->
...
...
...
</tr>
</table>

</body>
<html>

 

By using an external CSS Style file as style.css where we add CSS Style .selector_name { property: value; }

External CSS and HTML Syntax:

<html>
<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" type="text/css" />
</head>
<body>
<table>
<tr>
<th>title_text</th> <!-- each line one column -->
...
...
...
</tr>
<tr>
<td>content</td> <!-- each line one column -->
...
...
...
</tr>
</table>

</body>
<html>
Note: use external CSS instead.

}
.tr_head1{background:#0C6; padding:15px}
.tr_head2{border:thin #FFF; background: #CCC}
.tr_line{padding:15px;}
</style>
</head>
<body>
<h1>Cell padding and border</h1>
<table align="center" style="width:99%">
<thead>
<tr class="tr_head1">
<th class=" tr_line">ID</th>
<th class=" tr_line">Nombre</th>
<th class=" tr_line">Apellido</th>
<th class=" tr_line">Email</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
<tr class="tr_head2 ">
<td class=" tr_line">1</td>
<td class=" tr_line">Clark</td>
<td class=" tr_line">Kent</td>
<td class=" tr_line">clarkkent@mail.com</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td class=" tr_line">2</td>
<td class=" tr_line">John</td>
<td class=" tr_line">Carter</td>
<td class=" tr_line">johncarter@mail.com</td>
</tr>
<tr class="tr_head2">>

<td class=" tr_line">Peter</td>
<td class=" tr_line">Parker</td>
<td class=" tr_line">peterparker@mail.com</td>
</tr>
