The answer to the question would be: BBcode or HTML.
The subject matter I have in mind ... basically a list of common terms/abbrvs with their defs ... indeed would not work as a cut and paste with excel (did give it a try before I started the thread).

I got the same result when I tried that, Ray. On the plus side, at least I can take solace in knowing that what i tried was sensible.

Ive never tried the wrap codes. How does one employ them?

Wow! Don't know how I missed that on the side panel. Thanks, Mouse! Still would like to know how to create a table in a forum post, but now don't need to for what I was originally targeting.

You may be able to use BB code for primitive tables of no more than 3 columns. Look to the bottom left of this page and click BB Code. Do some reading.
