Creating an "Insert table function" for use in an Iframe

I currently have an iframe on a webpage into which users can insert
content. They can further customise the text as I've included buttons
such as Bold, Italic, Bullet point etc. This is done along the lines
of

<td><div class="cbtn" onClick="cmdExe c('bold',idCont ent)"
onmouseover="bu tton_over(this) ;" onmouseout="but ton_out(this);"
onmousedown="bu tton_down(this) ;" onmouseup="butt on_up(this);">
<img hspace="1" vspace=1 align=absmiddle src="images/Bold.gif"
alt="Bold">
</div></td>

But has anyone found a way of creating a table for insertion in an
Iframe. A much bigger task I realise but I'm not keen on users copying
tables from Word and inserting them into the iframe.

How about this approach:

<script type="text/javascript">
function buildiframetabl e() {
var f = document.forms['form1'];
var tdpad = +f.tdpad.value;
var tdspace = +f.tdspace.valu e;
var tborder = +f.tborder.valu e;
var rows = +f.rows.value;
var cols = +f.cols.value;
var d = document.getEle mentById('ifram e1').contentWin dow.document;
var table = d.createElement ('table');
table.border = tborder;
table.cellPaddi ng = tdpad;
table.cellSpaci ng = tdspace;
var tbody = d.createElement ('tbody');
for (var i=0; i<rows; i++) {
var row = d.createElement ('tr');
for (var j=0; j<cols; j++) {
var cell = d.createElement ('td');
cell.appendChil d(d.createTextN ode(i + ', ' + j));
row.appendChild (cell);
}
tbody.appendChi ld(row);
}
table.appendChi ld(tbody);
d.body.appendCh ild(table)
}
</script>
</head>

<body>

Excellent. That's exactly the sort of thing. Is it possible to make
the cells editable?

Google can't find me a good example of how to use the "if exists" syntax in MySql. Is it right that to use it this way: INSERT INTO IF EXISTS tMyTable VALUES("xxlk", "lkjlkjlkjljk") I want to insert into a table but only if the table exists. How does one, in general, from PHP, test for the existence of a table, without getting an error message?
