How do you add a table to an article?

I have an article here that I want to upload but it has a table (and a footnote in that table!) but I don't know how to upload this to libcom as a table. How do I do that?

I’ve always just done them as attached jpegs and then linked them from the text.

Which may not be the best way.

You can make one using HTML tags, though then HTML for the article must be enabled. I can turn that on for you if after you've made the page. Images work as well and may be easier;.

Alright Khawaga, I'll ask again after I make it.

If you paste a table into a tool like this is should create the HTML for you:

Hi am I reading this right? If I use "filtered html no line breaks" I can't use footnotes 1?
