    What are we supposed to enter in border? A color? A format? Anything else?

    Hi Geraldine - 

    Typically, you would enter how many pixels thick you wish for the border to be, so it will be a numeric value.

    Is there any way to format a particular cell (rather than the whole table) aside from diving into the html?  For instance, if I want to provide a background color for a header row or highlight specific rows of a table with a background color?

    Hi Janet! 

    This can be done either by amending the table's cell properties - by accessing the Advanced tab, or by editing the HTML code of the article.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks Alexander, it did a bit.

    Another question ... when selecting font color it doesn't allow me to pick white.  If I'm using a dark background I like to use a white font.  Is there a way to make it white?

    Hello Janet, 


    You would need to change the font color in the CSS in the advanced tab or acessing the HTML code of the article.

    How do I make the table borders show?

    HI Katie, This one should work.

    Just copy and paste this code at the end of your Help Center theme CSS file.

    .article-body table td {
    border: 1px solid;

    Let us know how it goes. :)
