If you've already created your table in HTML and then used some basic CSS to style it, it's time to learn a little more and see what you can do. 

First, it's time to refresh your memory about CSS id and class: Go to w3schools.org to review.

Then, see what you can do with CSS and Tables: Check out the possibilities at one or more of these sites
Then use the code on the attached file (called table.html) to style the tables using CSS. Do your best; we'll have a CSS Table Face-off on Thursday in class. The winner of the best set of tables (chosen by the class) gets a prize! 

Note: By naming your tables (use table#name in the CSS portion, and table id="name" in the HTML portion to control the two) you can control different tables to appear differently on your page.
