I have struggled with displaying tables or including them in text. No matter what I have done, tables in text turn out ugly. Attaching them as files just hasn't worked for me, until this evening.

I tried to attach a table today, but the site wouldn't take Excel or WORD files, or even a pdf ... Grrrrr. But I've got full up Adobe Acrobat and discovered that I could save a pdf file from Adobe as a jpeg. Success, because you can always (it seems) attach a jpeg. See 'Warren's Isuzu-based COLD +401 with SR20DE' for an example.

I know you can Zip Excel and WORD files, but then they aren't immediately visable to the reader; my jpeg approach addresses this.

Are there other approaches? What are the ordinary 'rules' (approaches)for doing this?

And, how can you include formatted tables in text (in the body of a posting)?

I'd upload the spreadsheets into google docs and then link to them from here.

Like this : https://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0At5vD6HPvyH2dEJEMHRFSTR3LWJENHRnU28yakFpQ2c&hl=en&output=html

You publish the spreadsheet as a web page under the arrow next to the "sharing" button in the top right corner.
