Putting tables into the blog - we now know how!

This is part of the occasional 'how to' instructions series. So ignore it if you are only here for the chess.

Put simply ... Blogger (the blog software) automatically puts space before any table that you post into it. Lots of space. See this blog for a demonstration..

The same blog suggests a solution (avert eyes at this point if not teccie). This is that you insert a small piece of CSS code at the top of the post:

<style type="text/css">.nobrtable br { display: none }</style>

and use the div tag to reference it, so

<div class="nobrtable">

Post your table here -------------------


Problem sorted. This means in plainspeak that we could post tables of results if we wanted to. It does however require some trickery ...
