Interface HTMLTableElement

All Superinterfaces:
Element, HTMLElement, Node
All Known Implementing Classes:
HTMLTableElementImpl

public interface HTMLTableElement
extends HTMLElement

The create* and delete* methods on the table allow authors to construct and modify tables. HTML 4.0 specifies that only one of each of the CAPTION , THEAD , and TFOOT elements may exist in a table. Therefore, if one exists, and the createTHead() or createTFoot() method is called, the method returns the existing THead or TFoot element. See the TABLE element definition in HTML 4.0.
