You don't need to worry about any of this to make a normal post!
html
Should work (if you tick the box below) but unfortunate things happen. The posting box generates a lot of line breaks, for instance. Make sure you preview before you post, and register first, so you can edit the unfortunate bits. You may just get an "HTML not allowed in this forum" error message: html jolly well is allowed, and the message just means the forum engine doesn't like your particular html.
Tables
Table html doesn't seem to agree with the ezboard engine at all. I found it was easier to turn the table into a graphic (via a screen shot) and link to that.
Images
Easy to link to them using EzCodes, but you need to store the gifs or jpegs somewhere. If you haven't got any webspace, send them to me (robert@t-english.com) in an email and I'll put them on the Target webspace (1plus1/Puretec in Karlsruhe)
Have fun. Please let me know what works and doesn't.

How did you manage that? My attempts to stick tables up here have never quite worked, but then I rely on the html in Word and Excel - and am complete html dummy!

right click, "view source" and you'll see how he's done it: normal html, no DIVs or css. Old fashioned font tags.
Seems ezboard have got better at handling tables: good to know
