Post your question to a community of 468,537 developers. It's quick & easy.

Why the need for <asp:table> etc... ?

Roy
Hey all,
Quick question here. Within VS.NET there are various tags such as
<asp:Table>, <asp:TableCell>, etc... which can be used in lieu of
<Table>, <td>, etc...

Why do such replacement tags exist? Do they convey any inherent
advantage over the old ones?

Thanks!

They can be created server side...they can be modified server side....it's
the entire programming paradigm of .Net...

the <asp:> control support databinding, where the standard html controls
with runat=sever do not.
