Cell Properties Dialog Box
The Cell Properties dialog box enables you to specify properties for individual cells in an HTML table while creating the table in Design view. The cell properties that you specify are applied individually to each td element in the table.
You can access this dialog box from the Insert Table dialog box.
To open the Cell Properties dialog box
On the Layout menu in Visual Web Developer, click Insert Table.
On the Insert Table dialog box, click Cell Properties.
This dialog box is used to edit HTML tables; it cannot be used to edit the ASP.NET Table control.
