Good tools for creating tables, including CSS setup, recommendations?
I want to be able to create tables for displaying information on web
pages and I'm looking for tools to help me do this. Most HTML I
either write directly with a text editor or is generated from
reStructuredText but either of these gets very laborious for tables.
What I need to be able to do is:-
Create and modify tables, add and delete rows and columns easily.
Change the borders for the whole table consistently and easily,
specifically I want completely plain (no shadowing) borders in a
pale colour so they they are not too distracting.
Make row spans and column spans easily.
Enter text into the cells.
I can't find anything that even appears capable of doing the above,
let alone make it easy. The things I have tried are:-
OpenOffice - a near miss but to save good HTML from Open Office
you have to Export rather than just save and even then the
handling of table/cell borders is still somewhat lacking.
SeaMonkey - It's nice and easy and does most things but it has no
table/cell border manipulation, it presumably leaves it to CSS so
one would have to do that by hand. I want a tool that does the
CSS as well.
Bluefish - doesn't seem to offer *any* help with tables at all
apart from generating an incredibly basic table.
Kompozer - crashes consistently, it's a known bug, maybe the next
update will be better.
... and that's about it.
Has anyone any better ideas? I'm willing to go for a mark-up language
that's good at tables (reStructuredText isn't particularly good) and
do the CSS myself though a WYSIWYG editor would be my ideal as tables
really need WYSIWYG.
Is there really no easy way to do this except DIY?
