Google Sites Table Menu
Sites tools include a Table editing menu.

Table ->

This allows you to prepare standard tables, using basic features.


  • Format cell contents however you like:
    • Bullet lists
    • Headings
    • Images
    • Table in Table
    • etc.
  • Drag the edges of cells to change their sizes


The Google user interface does not support many advanced table options such as:
  • removing or changing the grid lines
  • shading cells
  • merging cells
  • setting minimum or maximum widths for columns
To implement advanced table capabilities you must edit the HTML.
