<table> DOES work. I demonstrated it in another post. You just can't use any fancy spacing parameters. It HAS TO BE strictly simple or it won't work. Like this:
You can't use column width definitions, alignment, or anything fancy. This is a MAJOR annoyance to me. The story window is using a very simplified version of HTML. I can't figure out what it is, but it's very archaic.
Also, if your table is very long, or if you resize the window so the table goes beyond it.. if you scroll, the text disappears completely! /shakes fist at Sony.. DAMN YOU!
