    My “schedule” page should have a column with 1) date 2) time 3) golf course 4) format.

    I can’t get them to line up. Tab button doesn’t work in wordpress. I’m not really computer savvy. Thank you!

    The blog I need help with is ongcgolf.wordpress.com.

    Are you referring to an HTML table?

    No. It’s just a golf schedule I copied and pasted from a word doc.

    Here’s how to post from a microsoft WORD document cleanly. http://en.support.wordpress.com/microsoft-word/#using-word-cleanly

    Also go here please and enable this: Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    I watched the video previously and followed the directions. I also did the settings as you instructed. I’m just trying to straighten out the columns. Is there a reason I can’t use “tab”? I appreciate your help.

    You really should put the data in a Table. If you have a PC you can use Windows Live Writer to do a Table and upload the Page or copy and paste the Table if you are in html mode in the editor. I think @timethief has a how to on her site for doing Tables.

    No the Tab does not work real well nor do spaces (trust me on this I have tried) – the voice of been there goofed that up recommends a Table for your data.
