    I was wondering if someone can tell me how I can make each entry show up in a different table.
    My site is not up yet but I would like each of my entry to have its own little table.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    What do you mean by "table"? A box with borders, like where the title of this thread and the tags are?
    Open your CSS file and define borders for the content or post div.

    I was hoping if you can help me get my wp look like this http://zhuge.fanasty.net/
    I wanted each of the entry to be in its own table, or have it like a div. I don't know how to do it and where to do it.

    I'm working on a site for a non-profit orangization that I work with and I need some help soon.

    Any help provided by any of the members would be extremely appreciated.

    It is quite easy. What you have to do is to define a few divs at the start of the loop and close them at the end. This makes it so every post will be styled to those divs. Hope that helps

    First of all I don't think that's a WP site. Secondly I can't imagine any non-profit org. that would like to have a site looking like that :)
    (I used to work in that sector, too...)
    Click on the top of this page on the Extend link and try to find a WP theme that's close enough to what you want to do. Install it and try to tweak it for your liking.

    The non profit is for teens so we're trying to make it so that all the teens can enjoy the site and actually be a part of it. Some of the teens have used some blogs and gave us ideas to do our layouts/themes like that.

    Still, I would check through the many resources for WordPress Themes and see if there is something that comes "close" to it and then get the teens to help (if they know something about CSS) to style it. FYI: Tables are no longer being used for layout, only data.

    If you start with a base WordPress Theme, you can then customize it to whatever you want.
