I'm trying to have an HTML table that someone can click a <td> tag, type, and have whatever they type show up in that tag.

What would be the best way to do this?
Thanks,
-JWW


<table>
<tbody>
      <tr>
            <td>A</td>
            <td class="edit">B</td>
      </tr>
      <tr>
            <td>C</td>
            <td class="edit">C</td>
      </tr>

</tbody>
</table>
