If you want to do this the hard way (for you) then you can create a form 
which asks for the number of rows/columns and pops up another form with 
a table and rows x columns input boxes - then you can build the table 
code and maybe even insert it in the original code via JavaScript 
(assuming that the whole tables module would be a popup from the main 
text editing page).

You may want to take a look at nl2br() and htmlspecialchars() so they 
don't mess up your tables. htmlspecialchars() would obviously inhibit 
bold and italics rendering.

Be warned though that this will never end - they'll need table editing 
next, then they'll want to be able to delete rows/columns, insert 
rows/columns, merge cells, split cells, set background colors, styles 
and whatnot... ;-)
