Answer to comment - enhanced rich text field

Someone posted a comment asking about rich text in discussions. So I popped over to my testing machine and checked out the new "Enhanced rich text" field that is new in MOSS.

As you can see, "Enhanced rich text" is an option for a "multiple lines of text" field. by default in a discussion list it is already set to true.

Enhanced rich text enabled by default for discussion lists

When in the list, you get more controls then the regular rich text editor. these include adding a table:

When clicking the "insert table" button, the following screen pops up allowing to specify columns and rows:
