Tables are utilized for large amounts of corresponding information. If you have any information that is repeated over and over with slight variations (for example, a list of garbage pickup fees that vary based on the size of the container), it may be best suited for a table.
Examples of information that should go into a table include:
Multiple dates corresponding to separate information (i.e., tax dates, holidays)
Items with prices (i.e., maps, services)
A list of organizations and their corresponding services
Do not use tables to space content or pictures on the page.
To be ADA compliant, all columns must have headings.
Use the Table Widget.
If the information you are displaying in a table doesn't consistently fit under the headers for that table, that information should not be displayed in a table.
Tables should display using the “Alternate Rows” color setting (auto-table class setting).
When listing out dollar amounts in a table, if some of the amounts have cents ($3.45, etc.) you may add .00 to the end of whole dollar amounts to make it easier for users to scan.
