Formatting a table in a text activity of a book
Is there a tutorial that goes into some depth as to how to format text and tables within the text activity of a book? I am making a book and the table I created, in the editing screen, has columns that are close together. Then when the book is viewed, the columns are spread across the page, making it hard to read the table.
I see some [code] and [bbcode] categories and such that look like they might be of some help, but do not see how to implement them. I have tried several possibilities unsuccessfully.
Any help would be appreciated. I understand that I should RTFM before posting this, but have not found a suitable manual.
Thanks in advance.
