    Hi Diane 🙂 — I’m not sure how you are creating your table, but the HTML code is a bit of a mess. Basically, each piece of data needs to be in a separate table “cell” — that is between td tags. So where you have this:

    <tr>
    <td>Who                                             Where based                          Date</td>
    <td></td>
    <td></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> <a href="http://www.wolfmagazine.co.uk/">
    </a></td>
    <td></td>
    <td></td>
    </tr>

    It should be like this — some of the data below is only as an example — as you were missing some pieces.

    <tr>
    <td>Who</td>
    <td>Where based</td>
    <td>Date</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td> <a href="http://www.wolfmagazine.co.uk/"></a></td>
    <td>US</td>
    <td>Dec. 2001</td>
    </tr>

    Don’t use multiple spaces or tabs in the cells. If you have empty cells — i.e. you don’t have data to put in there, use   (non-breaking space code) which keeps the table formatting correct.

    Hope that helps…

    Hello Yogi!

    It looks like it ought to be doeable, but I’m a bit patchy on how to go about it; to get what I’ve got, I just used an option for a table from the TINY ME plug in: If I’m creating one using HTML, would I need to do that in an external syle sheet (php file)please? How did you get to observe the HTML (mess!)please?

    Look at the HTML tab, instead of the VISUAL.
