I have found this web page extremely useful for creating a table in my blogs.
Online tool for generating HTML for any table
When using this website tool, I have always used the simple editing options. These are define the initial size of a table (#1) and then enter the data cell by cell. Note it is possible to copy and paste a whole table from applications such as Google Docs.
When I’ve finished the data entry, I usually check the box for no CSS and request that the HTML code be generated in a ‘compact mode’. This means that the HTML has no spaces and new lines(#2). It is then a simple matter of generating the code (#3) and copying it to your clipboard(#4) and then pasting into your website as text (if a WordPress site).
The blue ‘Preview’ (#5) opens a tab in your browser and allows you to double check the contents of your table.
But if in any doubt the online tool’s page has an easy to understand help section that gives a step-by-step explanation.
Here’s the result from using the online tool
