I have been able to get the table to appear, but I still don't understand enough about the markup to make a decent table.
I add the table and place the cursor in one of the columns, but when I type it just overwrites the column and doesn't autoexpand like it does in Word.
I think it has something to do with the length of the column in relation to the characters placed in it. But, like I said, I don't know enough about RichText markup to achieve it. At this point, I am working on other aspects of the project where I wanted this feature and thought I would come back to it when I have time.
If you come up with anything, I would be very interested in hearing how you did it.
I would try this. Create the table you want in Word (or any other word processor capable of outputting in .rtf format).
Then save the document as .rtf. Open it in a text-based program like Notepad, and observe the RTF formatting that creates the table-type you are after.
A note on readability:
It is commonplace to not use capitalization in chat rooms, but it is an inferior way to communicate in more professional fora. I suggest that you get in the habit of using proper capitalization and punctuation (“cant” v. “can’t”, “... application.but i ...” v. “... application. But I ...”)
