The easiest way to create a table to be inserted into iWeb is to type the relevant html code into the html snippet and click Apply. This way you can customise and edit as much as you like.
Having tried 2 ways myself, I now much prefer this method - I created a table in Pages and copied and pasted it into iWeb and this worked, but you don't have a lot of control over it - you can only increase the size rather than editing anything directly.
If you place the html code into the snippet you can edit as much as you like and change colours, columns etc. as much as you like to get what you want.
It really is not as hard as it looks. You just have to be preparaed to learn a little bit of html and css code.
This is an example of a table created in an iWeb Snippet...
This one uses jQuery and FooTable to add extra features...
This Demo Page has an example of Wyodor's entry_297 method of adding a table via Excel to an iWeb page. It's not a fancy example but shows how you can control formatting, color, borders, etc. easily and be able to quickly make changes without having to fire up iWeb.
Even learning HTML and CSS is not strictly necessary when you can use a generator...
Editing code in an HTML Snippet is no fun and Text Edit is a poor substitute for an editor app. Although Fraise has been abandoned it still works pretty good and is free....
Smultron is going ahead and only costs $2.99 from the App Store...
Being able to check the document syntax for errors a a big plus.
Although I use Rage WebDesign to create web pages, I use Dashcode for the stylesheets since it is able to track changes - of which there are usually many!
I haven't worked with html for a while, especially with iWeb. I need to relearn some things. I have a table in Pages but when I paste the cells in iWeb, they are empty. How do I see the html for those cells?
Yes, tell me about editing code in an html snippet. All the tables that I have created in my own website have been created using html and css in an html snippet. After tryiing many methods, I realised that this was the only way to get the effect that I really wanted, so when things didn't work, I was squinting at my laptop whilst trying to sort out the code.
I try and leave plenty of space between lines of code, or I use TextWrangler instead and save as html document and then copy and paste the code into the iWeb html snippet when I get what I want.
