Hello & Thanks :

1) How can I create parallel tables (ie. side by side) .

2) How can I select 1 column in a table (or table like structure) . 

3) And I want Tables to be width-20% and width=80% respectively .

4) Also he rows need to line up .

    Because eventually the borders will be eliminatad .

I am doing that here with fake Tables:

http://vmars.us/reads/vmTemplate-2Parallel-Tables-P-Editable.html 

(It is contenteditable so you can see what I mean)

But the problem comes in when I enter text that overflows ,

the tables get stacked on top of each other . 

Thanks

I would consider using display flex, or display grid, the latter possibly being a better option.

To have equal rows height? From both tables would be difficult, unless it is single table made to look like two.

To access the columns, you would loop through each row, targeting all cells specific to column using its index.

Can't you use css to break long text so it does not overflow.

Thanks 

Things are looking better 

http://vmars.us/reads/vmTemplate-2Parallel-Tables-P-Editable-BEST.html

I can select copy paste each column .

But I still have a problem when I resize browser window horizontally and make it smaller .

Column 2 gets relocated under column 1 .

I don't remember , what is the name of that behavior (that I want to stop) . 

I want to keep cols horz , if column 2 gets partially hidden , that's ok .

Thanks
