I'm starting to understand it; thanks again. regexp is something I have tried to learn several times. It did work (though stripped out some of the &).

@AlanMunn I don't see this ability in any of the tools mentioned. I'm familiar with some of them, but generally they seem to be useful for generating the table initially, not for editing an existing Latex table (though maybe I have not looked thoroughly enough).

Thanks David - I'll try it out. That is a mind-melting regular expression.

perfect. Thanks, I did not realize that \usepackage[draft]{graphicx} handled the image size.

comment Inserting a small vertical space in a table
This does work (thank you). It creates a small offset unless the cell contents are touching the code (no whitespace).

comment Controlling the exact position of objects on a page
Are there any special considerations if I put a figure into the textblock? It works on TexWorks for me, but not with latex on my server. I get a variety of error messages, the first being You can't use \prevdepth' in restricted horizontal mode.`

It's just a one page document so there is no repetition.

comment Controlling the exact position of objects on a page
For a simple example, if I do the following: \begin{picture}(0,0) \put(6,3){}{text} \end{picture} this does not quite work for repositioning, but it does appear on the page. How can I adjust the location? I found it a little hard to understand what all the arguments are in the above example.
