There are a number of options for adding tables to your WordPress website.  The plugin I prefer is Easy Table because it is simple to setup and very functional.

Settings

Before getting started the only setting I change is switching the delimiter from a comma (,) to a pipe (|) since commas are used to display some data.  It prevents you from accidently running into formatting errors as demonstrated in my example below which has a list of cities using a comma before the state.

Usage

Here is a sample table using this plugin.  The first row will be the table headers which is a setting inside the plug options which can be disabled.
