You cannot create a cell by itself.  You need to create a table.  The table is just a series of cells.  If you want to create additional cells within the table, simply right click in the cell and choose split cells.  

If this isn't what you meant, then please give a little more information.  Using the page URLed above, what is it that you want to do?

messentary is right. U cannot insert a cell BEFORE insert a table.

Your problem is it is a virtual table and to be formated in FrontPage Explorer, Menu Tool/Shared Border...

If U need more than 5 cell, U have to insert table your self, and then just choose Border = 0 in table properties.

Hope that this help you. OK?

If you only need 1 cell, insert a table with 1 row and 1 column wherever you neeed it or paste in the following manually:
<table width="40" height="40 border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
    <td>Type your text here</td>
