Starting HTML alerts

I'm a medium-experienced Solarwinds administrator with a pretty good background in Windows server / Active Directory / SQL.

Knowledgable enough to create custom alerts in terms of trigger conditions, actions, etc.

However... I have little experience in HTML programming.  I'd like to start creating alerts with email notifications in HTML.

I've figured out HTML enough to make text bigger or smaller, and different colors.

But, not yet able to present alert data in a table with a nice header.

Can someone point me to a couple of simple examples for HTML tables used in alerts?  I've pulled down a couple of examples from Thwack and to me they look pretty complicated.  Looking for definitely a 100-level example (basic).

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
