One, two, three, four... four legs and a top describe the image that comes to mind. There are, of course, variations to this form. One central leg—brash elegance; three legs—a surprising stability; eight or ten legs—abundance. At a table we can talk, we can have a conversation. But tables are not only objects we find in kitchens and dining rooms. A “table” can also be a periodic one, a time table, a data table, a table of results of football matches. On the world wide web, a “table” is a structure that holds content together in a certain way, a standard tag in an HTML document. On the world wide web, a “table” is also a search term.
