Post Formatting

What's the best way to format a post? I was trying to reply to someone using spaces and returns to format some text into a simple table, but the system removed my extra spaces and the returns became
tags.

I ended up using a bunch of dashes to get my text lined up but it's ugly. Thanks!
See this post for an example of what I'm talking about:

I do not see it. All I see is this reply box.

I suspect you're using a browser with a plugin or configuration that's breaking it:

Chrome Version 47.0.2526.106 over here and no problems with seeing the formatting bar, must be a plugin or configureation.

Just use carriage returns.  Simplest way to keep a post "pretty."
