The <tbody> tag is used for grouping table rows.

The <tbody> tag is used in conjunction with the <thead> tag and the <tfoot> tag in determining each part of the table (header, footer, body). Browsers can use this information to enable scrolling of the table body independently of the header and footer - particularly useful for large tables.

Example Code:
<table border = "1">
    <tr><td colspan="2">Table Header (thead)</td></tr>
    <tr><td colspan="2">Table Footer (tfoot)</td></tr>
      <td>Cell 1</td>
      <td>Cell 2</td>
      <td>Cell 3</td>
      <td>Cell 4</td>
      <td>Cell 5</td>
      <td>Cell 6</td>
Table Header (thead)
Table Footer (tfoot)
Cell 1 Cell 2
Cell 3 Cell 4
Cell 5 Cell 6
