<tr> stands for "table row" and represents a horizontal row in a table, which contains cells

<td> stands for "table data" but really represents a single cell within a table row.

An important distinction is that you can't put any data directly inside a row, you must enclose it within a <td>

Example:

<table>
   <tr>
      <td>row 1 cell 1</td>
      <td>row 1 cell 2</td>
      <td>row 1 cell 3</td>
   </tr>
   <tr>
      <td>row 2 cell 1</td>
      <td>row 2 cell 2</td>
      <td>row 2 cell 3</td>
   </tr>
</table>

The above table will produce output that looks something like this:

row 1 cell 1   row 1 cell 2   row 1 cell 3
row 2 cell 1   row 2 cell 2   row 2 cell 3

Cheers,

Jesse

Thanks to both of you.  This helps me out immensly!  I think I understand a great deal more now from Jesse's example. I will accept Jesse's comment as answer but I will split the points between both of you.  I also like the page of commands.

Thanks and Cheers!
