making a table

Hi,

Can someone write a small html compliant example. I just want some arial text and a small table:

Sentence one
Sentence two (red font)

Col1    Col 2   Col3   Col4
-------------------------------
x      |     y     |   z    |     ?
------------------------------
x      |     y     |   z    |     ?
------------------------------

That's all I need.

Thanks

This is pretty simple to do, but here you go anyways:

<table>
<tr>
<th>Col1</th>
<th>Col2</th>
<th>Col3</th>
<th>Col4</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>x</td>
<td>y</td>
<td>z</td>
<td>?</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>x</td>
<td>y</td>
<td>z</td>
<td>?</td>
</tr>
</table>

last simple thing - how do I get a 1 pixel wide line between the rows and columns?

There are a couple of different options.  One is to use CSS which is a way to centralize all of your formatting changes.  Another is to apply the formatting directly to the elements.  Here is the second way:

<table border="1">
<tr bordercolor="#000000">
<th>Col1</th>
<th>Col2</th>
<th>Col3</th>
<th>Col4</th>
</tr>
<tr bordercolor="#000000">
<td>x</td>
<td>y</td>
<td>z</td>
<td>?</td>
</tr>
<tr bordercolor="#000000">
<td>x</td>
<td>y</td>
<td>z</td>
<td>?</td>
</tr>
</table>
