Great table styling + CSV export

Plugin is simple and allows you to style tables beautifully and easily. I am using Formidable Forms that generate tables for me, so I could not use any plugins (TablePress etc.) that require you to create a table or create SQL statement and have it saved within plugin. My tables are generated dynamically by another plugin so none of table plugins worked for me. This plugin allows me to style my tables based on best practices of DataTable for jQuery. But the biggest thing for me was to be able to export data into CSV. Author of plugin graciously agreed to add Buttons extensions to his plugin and I am now able to export to CSV and also Copy table data to clipboard. Overall this is a great free plugin that allows you to do a lot with your table style. Thank you!
