Categories by Tag Table

'Categories by Tag Table' displays all your Categories as rows and Tags as columns in a html table.

Can I customise the css styles of the table

You can specify the style most of the table elements through linking to an external stylesheet of your own and styling the elements within the <div id="catbytag">.

The best way to do this is to copy the default stylesheet default-css-settings.css (downloaded with the plugin), edit it as you see fit and then save this new file somewhere else on your website. Finally provide the URL to your new stylesheet in the options.

The Table Header looks really weird in my old browser

Modern browsers should render the header as text rotated rather than stacked vertically, this usually looks much better.

However if you have problems in Internet Explorer, then its probably this "nifty rotate text" css rule. To fix this edit the stylesheet (either the default one called default-css-settings.css via the plugin editor, or your own external one if you have used the option above) and completely delete the three lines marked that look like this...

max-height:7em !important;
    writing-mode:tb-rl !important;
    filter:flipv fliph !important;

Then replace them with...

max-width:0.5em;
    word-wrap: break-word;
    font-family:'Lucida Console',Monotype;
    vertical-align:bottom;

Can I change the sort order of how the Cats and Tags are displayed

You need to edit the following lines in the plugin file cat-by-tags-table.php (You can do this from within WordPress using the plugin editor at #blogurl#/wp-admin/plugin-editor.php) so from line 111 in the file the plugin default code is....

$cat_args=array(
     'orderby' => 'name',
     'order' => 'ASC',
     'taxonomy' => 'category'
     );

    $tag_args=array(
     'orderby' => 'name',
     'order' => 'ASC',
     'taxonomy' => 'post_tag'
     );

you need to replace the 'ASC' with 'DESC' in both places, save the changes and it should work .

Can I display the count of all posts (drafts + private) not just those that are published?

Yes just delete the following line...

$countsql.="JOIN $wpdb->posts AS E ON E.ID = A.object_id AND E.post_status = 'publish' ";

from the plugin file cat-by-tags-table.php

Can I use images instead?
