Looping a table with varied colspan in different cells


Recommended Posts

I can do a simple for loops to create a N x N table. However I am not sure how to approach for tables with different colspan in different cells like this?... 

Any hints or tips on how I should proceed? Thanks in advance.



Edit: This is the furthest I can come up with but there is something wrong in it and I am not sure what it is...

table {
  border-collapse: collapse;
  width: 900px;
th, td {
  border: 1px solid black;
echo "<table><tr>
        <td rowspan=\"2\">ID</td>
        <td rowspan=\"2\">Name</td>
        <td rowspan=\"2\">Date</td>";
for ($i = 1; $i <= 31; $i++) {
    echo "<td colspan=\"3\">$i</td>";
echo "</tr>";
for ($row = 1; $row <=5; $row++) {
    for ($col = 1; $col <=96; $col++) {
	    echo "<td>" . $col . "</td>";
    echo "</tr>";
echo "</tr></table>";
