    Hi Bryan,

    I've come across some odd behaviour with html tags when using clean home pro. It looks like some html tags are suppressed by the theme's css or what not. For example I'm trying to build an html table (admittedly always a pain in wordpress) but with clean home pro the border and bgcolor tags don't work.

    I do my editing in the HTML editor tab obviously, but when I switch to the visual tab the table displays with borders and bgcolors. So I know wordpress is digging the tags. But when published the table has no borders and bgcolor.

    I'm using really simple table html, which I will paste below. Forgive the few odd tags like tbody - wordpress adds them. What do you think? How can I get those tags to function? You can see the published version with failing tags here: http://www.rerunaround.com/tacos/
    Thanks!

    <table border="1" width="100%">
    <tbody>
    <tr>
    <td style="text-align: center;" colspan="4" bgcolor="#666666"><strong>North America</strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td style="text-align: center;" colspan="4" bgcolor="#999999"><strong>United States of America</strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td style="text-align: center;" bgcolor="#cccccc"><strong>City</strong></td>
    <td style="text-align: center;" bgcolor="#cccccc"><strong>Restaurant</strong></td>
    <td style="text-align: center;" bgcolor="#cccccc"><strong>Discovered By</strong></td>
    <td style="text-align: center;" bgcolor="#cccccc"><strong>Confirmed By</strong></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><strong>Austin, TX</strong></td>
    <td>Chupacabra</td>
    <td>Shawn</td>
    <td></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td><strong></strong></td>
    <td></td>
    <td></td>
    <td></td>
    </tr>
    </tbody>
    </table>

    I have no CSS to modify tables in Clean Home (just the reset.css touches them). You should not be hindered in your using CSS to style tables. Try using style="background:#999999;border:1px solid #000" instead of bgcolor and border tags in tables.

    That did the trick indeed! I guess those simple old tags were just too simple for fancy pants wordpress. Thanks very much! I really appreciate the great info and prompt response!
