Spanned cells are cells you merged. They can be deleted by splitting them first, and then deleting the rows you want deleted. If it is a complex set of cells, and you want to remove multiple rows/columns, first merge all the cells to be removed and then split them. This procedure will split them all.

Spanning a cell means making the cell expand across the other cells also , for ex:

<TABLE border="1">
<TR><TD>1 <TD rowspan="2">2 <TD>3
<TR><TD>4 <TD>6
<TR><TD>7 <TD>8 <TD>9
</TABLE>

As cell "2" spans the first and second rows, the definition of the second row will take it into account.

But all points to Sjef
