In today's tutorial you created four table-based layout elements, a masthead, a navigation bar, a sidebar, and a main content area. You also learned how to insert text and images into the table-based layout elements. And you also learned how to format text and add background color to the table-based layout elements.
A neat, timesaving trick you learned is selecting cells as a group. That let's you make the same edits to all the cells in the group at one time -- instead of having to repeat the changes for each cell, one at a time.
MozillaQuest Magazine will show you more tricks and more things you can do with Mozilla Composer to design, create, and edit Web pages in upcoming editions of this hands-on, tutorial series. In the meantime start using Mozilla Composer to design, create, and edit Web pages on your own. You will be surprised at how much you can learn on your own.
