Tables

I've been working on a ebook that involves a number of tables, and all I've been able to find is that converting tables from word to .epub or .mobi is hard. Why?

I have some free time this summer and have a fair bit of programming experience (python, html, java, c++, c). Is this something that can be worked on/fixed? Where is a good place to start learning about this?

Edit: Sorry I think I posted this in the wrong subforum >.>

This is probably where you think it should be

@Ephemerality314 - firstly welcome to Mobileread

My first question is - have you tried calibre's DOCX to EPUB conversion. Maybe you could outline its shortcomings w.r.t. tables

And have you tried this e-Book Tools - a Word add-in

FWIW - when I have anything with non simple tables I settle for PDF.
