Depends, from the "logic" point of view you are right, but my Latex Book
(Latex by Helmut Kopka, Addison-Wesly, sorry german only) says thats the
way to do a table with a row with two lines in that row.
In HTML I get 2 rows with one line each, which is not the result I want.

In Latex "logic" there is a difference between row and row ;-) - A
"logical" row is ended with "\\" a "optical" row is ended with "\hline".
In HTML the "logical" and the "optical" row are identical, a row is
always ended with "</TR>".

Another stupid question: How can I do that?

I do not agree with that...see above.

No problem, that is why I started with that "stupid question" thing.
