Hi,

The best way I know about making an html table is by using CSS to define the rules. With CSS you can increase the interactivity of the list by manipulating mouse activity.

Also if you want to manipulate the content of the list dynamically, you can try using a scripting language such as PHP or JavaScript to generate content for the fields.

Hi Joseph,

Creating a dynamic table of contents using HTML might not be a good idea.  Defining rules in HTML would be very difficult or at most impossible to do.  CSS or Cascading Style Sheets might be the method you are looking for.  It is very easy to learn and once you get the hang of it, you can easily manipulate it according to your intended design.

With CSS you can define table borders, configure table width and height, set the alignment of your text in the table, add padding and colors as well.  

You can find a short tutorial on CSS Tables on this link : http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_table.asp

Good luck!
