    Windows Live Writer is a fantastic tool to work on, but when it comes to creating tables, I simply hate the way it functions. The WLR team certainly has it’s task cut out as far as the table functionality is concerned. I’ve always had to switch between Word and Writer and that’s not the way it’s supposed to work! Much easier using the WP dashboard to get the job done.
