I use Windows Live Writer as a blog editor and one thing that I have found is that it really stinks when it comes to copying and pasting. Especially when it comes to advanced content such as tables. Well, there is a trick and if you know the trick it is wicked easy! To paste a table with formatting into Windows Live Writer, go to the webpage that has tables Select and copy the table you want to replicate and then pop back into live writer. Right-Click at the location you want to paste the table and select Paste Special from the menu.
Then Select Keep Formatting and click OK
How easy was that? I did a video of me showing this solution. You can download it from How To Paste Tables With Formatting Into Windows Live Writer Video
