What I was looking for was a software package that you could ask
questions and it will show you.  Telling you verbally would be better.
 But that would also be known as an oooooonline tutor.  I need you now

Above, I have posted xhtml that validates as xhtml strict in the W3C validator:

A couple notes about things to look for when moving from html to xhtml.
1.  Every tag must be closed.  So something like an <input> tag which
does not have a closing tag in html can be closed by adding a space
and slash, like this <input />

2.  Tags should be in lowercase.  While it did not matter in html,
xhtml is strict about this.

3.  You do well to avoid <br /> in favor of wrapping things in
paragraph containers with <p>  </p> tags.

Search strategy:  Use xhtml reference materials and the W3C validator
to compose valid xhtml.

I am sorry that you needed it in a table.  Had I seen that in the
question, I would have done that for you.  Just so you know for next
time, if you put in a clarification request (such as, "I need it in a
table") before rating the answer, a researcher has the opportunity to
help further.

In any event, I hope the xhtml provided helped in some capacity.

My mistake, I must have missed the word table ("in a table form") in
your question.  I am sorry I missed that.  My sincere apologies.
