Grids & Tables
Built into Mathematica is a uniquely flexible and concise language for creating 1D and 2D layouts—from simple tables to the most elaborate information displays and user interfaces. Mathematica provides both automatic aesthetic choice and detailed control. Its symbolic architecture allows direct programmatic specification of every aspect of layout, both static and dynamic.
