It is used to insert a title in a table. It must be inserted just after <table>, like its first child.

You can control the rendering position visually with the caption-side CSS property (top/bottom).

If the table is the only descendant of a <figure>, use <figcaption> instead of <caption>.

  • Type: block
  • Self-closing: No
  • Semantic value: No
