tfoot Tag in HTML


An HTML table with a <thead>, <tbody>, and a <tfoot> element:


Definition and Usage

The <tfoot> tag is used to group footer content in an HTML table.

The <tfoot> element is used in conjunction with the <thead> and <tbody> elements to specify each part of a table (footer, header, body).

Browsers can use these elements to enable scrolling of the table body independently of the header and footer. Also, when printing a large table that spans multiple pages, these elements can enable the table header and footer to be printed at the top and bottom of each page.

Note: The <tfoot> element must have one or more <tr> tags inside.

The <tfoot> tag must be used in the following context: As a child of a <table> element, after any <caption>, <colgroup>, <thead>, and <tbody> elements.

Tip: The <thead>, <tbody>, and <tfoot> elements will not affect the layout of the table by default. However, you can use CSS to style these elements (see example below)!
