How can I import table data into a page or post?

Some of our customers have asked how to add table data (from Excel or Numbers, or some other spreadsheet program) to pages or posts. WordPress’ native content editor does a lot of cool things, but working with table data directly isn’t currently one of them, so importing a table from Excel is a nifty little workaround, and a lot easier than learning how to write tables from scratch using HTML.

We put together this screencast to show you how to use a nifty little online tool to get the job done. The online table converter I reference in the screencast is:

We hope this screencast was helpful. Let us know if there’s some other walk-through that would make your life easier if you could see it done in a future screencast!
