17 Apr 2009: 4.9.1: Save of table can only be done with http POST method, not GET
 
01 Nov 2008: 4.9: Arthur Clemens: Fixed rendering of verbatim blocks when editing. Added parameter buttonrow="top" to allow the buttons to be positioned at the top of the table.
26 Sep 2008: 4.8.7: Arthur Clemens: Let empty table initialize more than one column from header parameter
24 Sep 2008: 4.8.6: Arthur Clemens: Fix parsing of header labels
Line: 227 to 234
 
16 Dec 2007: 4.6: Kenneth Lavrsen: The plugin prevents TablePlugin from initsorting the table being edited. This is done by temporarily appending the attribute disableallsort="on" to the TABLE tag of a table being edited. Additionally all header sorting is disabled while editing a table by setting a hidden formfield sort to "off". Disabling sorting while editing is needed now that the EditTablePlugin supports moving rows up and down.
01 Dec 2007: 4.3: Arthur Clemens: added support for TablePlugin headerrows and footerrows; updated edit button
16 Oct 2007: 4.2: Arthur Clemens: refactoring, bug fixes.

15 Mar 2007: Arthur Clemens: Fixed eating of double newlines; icons for javascript buttons and interface improvements. By default the javascript interface is turned off, set JAVASCRIPTINTERFACE to use it in edit mode.
05 Mar 2007: Byron Darrah: Added ability to dynamically move and delete rows.
