when im editing a blog post i can format it to look the way i want it :



and as soon as i publish the text on the blog page loses its formatting:



i have used the tab key to separate the times and keep them in straight lines so why isn't the formatting staying?

PS. i haven't copy and pasted - i typed it myself.

Hi Justin,

The tab is not a standardised space layout.

You have a couple of options: either insert an HTML table or try using spaces to fill the distance between the day and the time but not sure if that will work. There are a number of table generators online that will do this for you. Quackit is a reliable standby

Your third option is by using CSS.

Glad you got it working.

I generally try to use CSS for such tables and it's an issue of what's the most recommended. I think for a small table like this that HTML is the easiest way(?) although many would probably say that CSS is easier. You have to understand CSS quite well to create a table though so there's downtime in the learning that's why I think for a limited application the generator performs perfectly.

I think Sanja was the source of the Quackit genie so Yola come up with the goods again. :)
