I have a nice looking table that lists news articles. The format is
<table style="width: 100%;" border="0" bordercolor="#000000" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0"> <tbody> <tr> <td style="width: 1%;"><strong>Date </strong></td> <td class="last heading"><strong>News </strong></td></tr> <tr> <td>MM/DD/YYYY </td> <td class="last">Publication name: <a href="http://www.news-site.com" target="_blank">Big news story here.</a></td></tr> ... </tbody> </table>
Our CMS has a WYSIWYG editor that’s not Mac friendly, and breaks this table. The Mac users need to add articles to this table regularly. Sometimes they also need to remove articles.
I can get by fine just copy-pasting HTML, but the Mac users do not want to edit any HTML. I need something that will extract the table from the live site, accept a user’s input of new data, and then return code for a new table that’s ready to copy and paste into the CSS HTML view.
An older thread discusses a few good table generators, but those are not capable of pulling a live table from an existing page.
Am I going about this the hard way? Should I try making my own table generating tool, like the one at http://tablegen.nfshost.com/?
