It's probably best to create the tables in a different package and then get an image, or a screenshot from that,

Subject: [Xerte] how do I create Tables in XERTE pages

I'm am fairly new to XERTE and am starting to use it in some modules, I am trying to encourage academics to use it instead of their PowerPoints; for its added functionality, and it's pretty easy to use, so I am finding out what is readily accessible to non-coders.
I am trying to create a table in a text page (Block off text with a table underneath) and can't find a way to do it.
I tried the drawing tool and besides being too long-winded I found the text was displaying vertically and spilling over the edges of the box. I next tried the columns page but that looks awfull as a table (and you can't colspan) and then I tried writing the HTML in a text page but that didn't work.
Could someone please tell me how this should be done please.
