LaTeX doesn't require any packages to use tabular by itself, so tabular is ubiquitous. The limitations of tabular are that it doesn't add sufficient whitespace around cells. Though it's not a limitation, many users add unnecessary vertical lines and double lines to their tables. The booktabs package has a few commands that vastly improve the quality of tabular 's tables, and the documentation for booktabs has some advice on typesetting tables properly.

Since the launch of this site, this utility has generated millions of tables, making life easier for students, scientists, academics and LaTeX enthusiasts. My goal was to create an editor that would be easy to use, that would generate its own code and that would handle all situations to produce clean and neat tables. I am the sole developer of this project and I ask for your help. I would like to include many more features on this website, so that creating tables can become an even easier task.

For more professionally looking tables you probably want to try booktabs package. The tables produced with this style look more like the tables you can see in the books, scientific articles, and newspapers. The tables differ from the plain LaTeX tables in a few aspects:.
In the previous tutorial , the importing of graphics was introduced. However, just having a picture stuck in-between paragraphs does not look professional. For starters, we want a way of adding captions, and to be able to cross-reference. What we need is a way of defining figures. It would also be good if LaTeX could apply similar principles to when it arranges text to look its best, to arranging pictures too.
