Yesterday I tried to post a table, using the "Source code" button. I set up <p> tags around my descriptive text, and used <table>, <td>, <th> etc to build up the table. Everything looked correct in the editor, but upon posting it stripped every single HTML tag out, resulting in a single block of text.

I half-salvaged it by changing all of the <p> tags to <br /> and redid the table in a plain-text format, but it's not as pretty as I'd like. What is the correct way to stop the HTML from being stripped?

I posted from Firefox (actually SeaMonkey, but it's the same engine) but am about to try Safari...

Col1 Col2 Hello World

Edit: Yep, happening in Safari too.

I know that it's possible, but I can't figure out what's "special" about that code.

Help! :)

Sorry couldn't stop myself, dinning tables are mostly what I have experience with.

You don't. Malformed tables screw up the page and parsing html is terrible idea so tables are filtered where possible.
