I cannot enable HTML. I have no idea how to put in table code here with the tags they use without HTML. I had created a table, saved it in Word as an HTML doc, but when I pasted it in here, it was not a pretty sight...just the code. Office 2007 adds in a bunch o' junk to its code now.

I'm sort of lost as to how to do it. Suggestions?

I have a website on DIY. But it does not have this table. However, I can add one. I'll do that over the weekend under Resources on my website.

Here is my website: www.doityourselfskincare.com (MMH will put in smart tags here, so you will of course need to copy and paste the URL into the browser to get there.

I'll continue to add to info here in the meantime.
