I would liek to see more fuctionality with tables in the next release. Specifically, these are the things I would like to be able to do.
1. Place objects such as images and html code into a specific cell. I know you can set an image as a background, but that kills the ability to use "Alt" text.
2. The ability to build nested tables. They would make layouts a lot easier and give more consistent page presentation across browsers.
3. The ability to manipulate cell size through cell properites by entering a height and width value, sort of like how you can set the height and width on the page properties. This would end teh trying to drag the cell borders back and forth trying to get the table layout you want.
