I am diving into html for tables (not by choice) as there is not Graphical Editor for them, and have run into the following glitch.
I understand (via googling the topic) that the way to get an empty cell is to use a nonbreaking space character inside the td tags, which is inserted by inputting in direct sequence
ampersand n b s p semicolon
This works fine when I test it in w3schools site. But when I do this in wordpress when I put that character sequence in, I get the literal character string showing up in the table cells. How can I force it to be interpreted?
Or, alternatively, what other trick do I need to use to get a blank cell in my table?
I'm sure lots of people have solved this already. Any tips?
