If a table is included in a post then when excerpts are listed in the home page, the table formatting is removed and you just get the data listed vertically which looks a mess.
I added the table/tbody/tr/td so that they are not stripped out and that works to an extent, except that sometimes the full table is included in the excerpt and sometimes its not, it doesn't appear to be at the correct number of excerpt bytes but some arbitrary place. When the full table is not output then the whole layout is corrupted as the table is not closed and the rest of the output appears as part of the table. Really I guess the code should include the full table and not break it half way once it has started output.
I also tried using the read more tag in the post to stop the table being included in the excerpt, this works but there is a bug/feature in that the read more tab is not included after except, it would appear this is because if there is not much text before that table. The code should honour the fact it has seen a read more tag and add a read more tag to the excerpt regardless of the amount of data put in the excerpt.
Any thoughts on how I might solve these issues, any chance of fixing the read more issue?
