used to provide a short description of a table, much like an image caption. By default, most visual browsers render the <caption> element centered above the table.
<table width="75%" border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0"> <caption>Table 1: Testing the HTML table commands</caption> <tr> <th>heading one</th> <th>heading two</th> <th>heading three</th> </tr> <tr> <td align="center">Row one col one</td> <td align="right">Row one col two</td> <td>Row one col three</td> </tr> <tr> <td>Row two col one</td> <td>Row two col two</td> <td>Row two col three</td> </tr> </table>
|heading one||heading two||heading three|

Here's a good article for creating HTML tables.
Use boldface type.
Use italic type.
Creates bigger text.
Creates smaller text.
Use a typewriter-like (fixed-width) font.
<font [color=color,] [size=size,] [face=face]> </font> (deprecated)
Can specify the font color with the color attribute, typeface with the face attribute, and absolute or relative size with the size attribute.
1. <font color="green">text</font> creates green text.
2. <font color="#1f4099">text</font> creates text with hexadecimal color #1f4099.
3. <font size="4">text</font> creates text with size 4. Sizes are from 1 to 7. The standard size is 3, unless otherwise specified in the <body> or other tags.
4. <font size="+1">text</font> creates text with size 1 bigger than the standard.. <font size="-1">text</font> is opposite.
5. <font face="Courier">text</font> makes text with Courier font.
Links and anchors
Creates an element that becomes a hyperlink with the href attribute set to a URL; additionally the attribute title may be set to a hover box text, some informative text about the link:
<a href="URI" title="additional information">link label</a>
In most graphical browsers, when the cursor hovers over the link, the cursor typically changes into a hand with a stretched index finger and the additional information pops up, not in a regular window, but in a special "hover box", usually similar to a Tooltip, which disappears when the cursor is moved away. Some browsers render alt text the same way, though this is technically incorrect.
Alternatively (and sometimes concurrently), the element becomes an anchor with the name attribute set, which preceded by a number sign '#' in the URL acts as a link target (a "document fragment"), typically scrolling directly to that point of the page. Any element can be made into an anchor by using the id attribute, so using <a name="foo"> is not necessary.
<a href="http://www.toledotalk.com/lewiki" title="Wiki of Lake Erie West region">Lewiki</a>
Includes an image with the src attribute. Alt is intended as alternative text, although many browsers render it as a tooltip; the title attribute is the tooltip text.
<img src="http://www.toledotalk.com/lewiki/lewiki.gif" alt="Goofy Lewiki image">
<br> To create a line break.
<hr> Inserts a horizontal rule.
<!-- ... -->
Encloses a comment. This is an SGML tag and not limited to HTML, so it may appear anywhere in the document, even before the DTD or after </html>. A client should render none of its enclosed contents. The closing ">" is required. For compatibility with some pre-1995 browsers, SGML comments are sometimes used inside <style> or <script> tags, but this is not necessary and may in fact cause undesired effects.
HTML Element article at Wikipedia
Some CMS apps only allow certain HTML tags, such as:
<a> <em> <strong> <cite> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <b> <i> <img> <blockquote>
