I need tables. Is there something I am missing in not seeing a table creator in the editor? It just makes the layout all that much easier.
No table editor that I know of. What I do is make my table in an HTML Editor, then cut and paste the source. Works well. If you are using templates, you can link and edit directly in your favorite HTML program. For articles, the cut and paste method is the only way I know of for now.
Is there a source for "ready made" templates anywhere?
If you go to some of the "Tips" sites, they have a few links to ready made templates.
When I need a table, I do it in Front Page and copy it into an article.
There's a movement afoot to avoid tables for layout. I'm not sure that I agree, but some people feel passionate about it.
Tables are not the solution for everything, but I really, really miss them....

Unfortunately, sometimes tables are absolutely indispensible. They may not be the best solution for layouts, but they are essential for displaying lots of tabular data.
