Using a table in an Joomla 1.5.7 article body

My first Joomla 1.5.7 website.

I want to insert a table in an article.

I see how to insert a table, and how to merge cells. But how do I resize cell sizes (or can they automatically resized based on contents?).

How do I show the grid lines of a cell when the page is published? (The don't show by default.)

How do I resize text (I only see controls for Format and Font Family, not Font Size)?

Where is documentation answering these question?
