I am a dunce

I have been trying to make a nifty table showing the stats of all the Canes players from their play in Torino. However, something was going awry, and Blogger was leaving a huge space between my text and my table. I thought I got around that by disabling the "line break" thing in the template settings, but that took ALL line breaks out of the previous posts as well. It looked like crap. Without doing that, the post with the tables wasn't going to work, but I don't want to have to type the <br> and </br> commands every time I want a line break.

Any advice?

I know, another option would be to create a table in Excel, save it as a jpeg file, and upload the "image" to blogger, but that seems like a silly way to do that. Seriously, I'm at a loss here.

When I need to create html or any type of code for large amounts of data to go into a table or something (where all the code surrounding the data will be the same), I put my data in Excel, lined up how you would want it to look in a table (and put an empty column between each data column), then fill (using the drag copy and paste functionality in Excel) in the empty columns with the html needed to surround your data. Then just select all of that, copy/paste it into a text editor to make sure it all came out okay, and then paste into blogger. Did that make sense?
