The desired Width of the table can be determined by three ways,
either by selecting:
– a figure that constitutes the Percent of the page width,
– the number of Pixels to use, or
– em.

   (Em refers to a width equivalent to the maximum height of a character in
   the font you are using, e.g. from the base of a lower case y to the top of
   a t.)

• You can determine the Layout of your table through alignment and
  border thickness.

• If no alignment has been set from the drop-down menu it will default
  to left alignment.

• Border thickness is measured in pixels, with 0 being an invisible
  border.

• Cell spacing sets the amount of space between table cells, while cell
  padding sets the amount of space between the content of cells and
  their border.

• To insert nested tables, place your cursor in the relevant cell of an
  existing table prior to clicking Insert Table from the toolbar.

• It refers, in HTML terms, to the elements that make up your page,
  and indicates where your cursor is at any time within the document
  editor.

  your table (or page) for editing.
