Another useful table tag is <TH> which is used for adding heading to columns. It replaces the <TD> tags of the first row. The <TH> tag helps in a logical table structure assisting in overall page design. Contents of <TH> are typically rendered in bold by browsers.

<TH>Heading 2</TH>
<TH>Heading 3</TH>
</TR>
<TR>
<TD>Column 1</TD>
<TD>Column 2</TD>

Heading 1 Heading 2 Heading 3
Column 1 Column 2 Column 3
