From time to time I have to write a small report and usually I end up having to present data in a table. Everytime I end up thinking that a table is an ugly looking rectangular box I wish I could leave out.
I don't have any degree in design, but I would like to know how I can make my tables look more smooth and blend better into the document. This has nothing to do with using
HTML tables for layout. It is the aesthetically appearance of tables in text.
I know its subjective, but if you have seen or created a set of tables in a document somewhere, which you think looks good, it could be nice to see them and maybe get some inspiration from there.
