Right. I forgot about having to put it into a text frame, too. I avoid putting tables into tables because I've often used WebWorks ePublisher to create online help. ePublisher views anything inside of an anchored frame as an image (and will turn embedded tables into an image), thus ignoring any formatting you have applied to table para tags in ePublishers Style Designer.
