    Probably another embarrassing question on my part. I need to add a table to page. What is the easiest way to accomplish this? Right now the only way I see to do this is by adding the HTML code directly to the page, but that seems so contrary to CSS.

    That’s how I would do it. Though if you do it this way it would be better to stick to using Text editor mode instead of the Visual.

    but that seems so contrary to CSS.

    What do you mean? Tables are created using HTML markup. CSS is only used for when you want to style your tables.

    If you aren’t familiar with the table HTML markup you could use plugins that create tables for you. Ex:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/tablepress/
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/easy-table/

    “What do you mean? Tables are created using HTML markup. CSS is only used for when you want to style your tables.”

    I lose sight of that point and sometimes find myself embedding inline what should be the CSS. It’s a combination of ignorance, fatigue and breaking a very bad habit. I did add the formatting to the CSS (in the child) for this table. I was hoping for button like the ones for making lists. Making an HTML table is tedious.

    Eventually I want to turn this site over to other people to add stuff and maintain. They know zilch HTML. The plugin is the way to go. Thanks.

    I told them to hire someone who knows what they are doing, but here I am. So I hack in my free time and they are architecturally getting every penny they paid for! So far your well designed theme is keeping them from serious trouble. In addition to no payment, I have no deadlines and no critics so for now this is fun.
