Is this bold?

This is a test, too.  Bold.  Italic.  Underline.  Colour.

1. There is a sky   |1. The sky is black and gloomy|1. The sky is blue and clear
2. You can make tables   |2. It's a fair amount of work|2. That it would be worth all of the effort

As you've gathered, the table function is akward and the tabular format isn't always apparent without some additional work. In the above example, I added an extra row between the headings and embedded a horizontal rule in each cell of that row: [ hr ] ; I also added an extra column in between the others and put a pipe symbol (|) in it to approximate a vertical rule.

Often it's eaiser to surround some text aligned by padding spaces between the columnar text with:

Code: [Select]
[font=monospace]
Some tabular text aligned with spaces
[/font]

Which would look something like this.

Ah so, very cute.  Thanks a lot, PG Tagmeister.  It IS a bit of trouble, isn't it.  Better to do it offline with a more capable editor, just add a couple more tags in....

Question: 
Code: [Select]
[tt][ hr ][/tt] -- but I don't see any 'tt' tags in your table code ('less I overlooked them).  You meant
Code: [Select]
[td][ hr ][/td]-- right?

Another question: Your code has returns here and there between tags, so I guess I can use them ad lib to clarify things before 'previewing';  are they NLs, CRs, NL/CRs or what?  Or, is the system smart enough to convert?

Last question:  How to wrap lines of text, within a cell?

You're right, of course. The code for a cell with a horizontal rule line would be (note the absence of spaces between the square brackets and the "hr" code):

Code: [Select]
[td][hr][/td]

You can put breaks (and space indentations) outside of the table-cell commands, which makes the code marginally easier to work with, e.g:

Code: [Select]
[tr]
  [td]KNEW[/td]
  [td][/td]
  [td]BELIEVED[/td]
  [td][/td]
  [td]TRIED TO BELIEVE[/td]
[/tr]

That code would render just fine (as in the examples above).

Your web browser will wrap text within a cell if necessary. It's automatic.

If you want to deliberately insert a line break within a cell, just put a break at the desired point within the content of the cell:

Code: [Select]
[td]LINE #1
LINE #2[/td]
