HTML thead Tag Tutorial

In this section, we will learn what HTML <thead> element is and how to use it.

What is <thead> Tag in HTML?

HTML <thead> element stands for Table Header and we use it when we want to group the header part of a table.

A table typically is divided into three parts: header, body, and footer.

The header part most of the time is just one row with a couple of cells and the content in each cell is in bold face.

This header part is created via HTML <tr> element. But we use <tr> element to create other rows on a table as well.

So in order to separate the header row/s from the rest of a table (group-wise) we can use the <thead> element.

HTML <thead> Tag Syntax:
