For WYSIWYG users, if they insert a table and then another table, it looks like two tables in WYSIWYG mode... until they save at which point the two tables collapse down to a single table. This is unexpected behavior and hard to fix after the fact without going into wiki text mode (which non-technical users avoid).

See EditTest20 for an example on Foswiki 1.1.9 or on trunk.

Confirming this. We need to insert an extra blank line between tables when converting consecutive tables. Unfortunately the round trip between TML and HTML is quite difficult at times especially because HTML generally ignores white space, and TML requires and is delimited by it.

This is an area where we've had a lot of difficulties. Inserting an extra blank line on save, and removing them when editing is rather inexact, and we get into issues with growing or shrinking white space after consecutive saves.
