Just finished an hour-long exercise trying to get a table to work. I copied the table from another website and it was fine except for auto formatting by WordPress. So I disabled auto formatting with the Don't Muck Up My Markup plugin. Unfortunately it disabled all the
and <p> markup within each table cell. So I manually input them and, in CK Editor, changed the font to a smaller, sans-serif font. WordPress then added so much code that I could hardly find my information. It messed up things totally. There is no way I can get it right. The earlier website was a stright PHP dynamic website where a table was quickly and automatically created without trouble. After an hour trying to turn WordPress's formatting on and off and wrestling with CK Editor and other plugins, I'm beginning to believe WordPress is useless for my purposes and I might as well just use Dreamweaver and make changes to text when my client asks me to. Thanks for an educational waste of time.
