I have used HotDog since Sept. 1995, and I think it is great. I just
upgraded from Hotdog Pro v.1.3 to 2.5.1. (2.5.2 is also out, but it is
not yet at the mirror sites.)

Even though I love HotDog, I haven't really used it for my table creation.
(And, yes, I've done *lots* of HTML tables.) Because most of our tables
start out in Microsoft Excel, I use one of the very easy-to-use Excel-to-HTML
converters out there. The one I use is XL2HTML.EXE by Jordon Evans. Go to
for more info.

After it gives you good table HTML code, you might have tweak it to delete
blank cells or adjust the alighment, but that's a simple task. I've used this
method for several very large tables, and it works. (Yes, if possible, break
up your large tables, but sometimes you need that info all together.)

Hmmm...Since you are doing tables, be sure to learn COLSPAN.

You should download it again, perhaps from a mirror site. The Help file
should be in there.
