HTML row span

I have an html table. The last column needs to span a number of rows. I want the content (a form submit button) to be aligned in the middle vertically.

Let's say there are 7 columns.

In the first row do I specify the last column by this structure:

<tr>
     <td>Column 1</td>
     <td>Column 2</td>
                etc.
     <td rowspan="5" valign="middle">Col 7 content</td>
</tr>

And then ALL the other rows have only 6 columns?

Or does it matter which row I put the spanning column in?

Thanks

Hi,

You needn't have asked the question, you've hit the nail on the head there. That code should work by putting the rowspan in the 7th column on the first row and then simply only putting in 6 columns for the rest of the rows.

Kind regards,
Amish.
