How do you assign a margin before and after a table? In Framemaker, you

That seems the simplest way to set tables off from the surrounding text.
Is there something similar in Word? I've dutifully searched the online
help and don't find anything.

One way is to create and use styles like 'Table before' and 'Table
after' that can provide the exact spacing you want.
