Regarding drawing tables,
Have you seen ABE Math Tutorials/Logic? There are sections of this tutorial that have truth tables, such as Using truth tables. You can see how to draw a table if you click one of those pages' "edit" tabs, and then you will find the code for how to draw a table. That's another way to draw a table besides using the button. Hope this helps. --AFriedman 16:08, 9 February 2009 (UTC)
Anne, Thanks for the tip. I checked them out -- very helpful. I think I've got the basics now.
I see you live in NYC. Very close to me (I'm in NJ), although I don't get up that way much.
Thanks again for the help.

No problem. That's neat, that you come from NJ! I sometimes go to eastern New Jersey, because that's where part of my family lives. NJ is a somewhat different culture from NY, even though so many New Jerseyans commute to the city every day. And by the way, I was homeschooled as well. So it's nice to see that you're a homeschool mom. Wikis are incredible resources for homeschoolers, I think. --AFriedman 03:05, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
