There isn't a built-in table feature. However but you can build the table with some HTML that you place in a Code Block. This will give you the basic table and then you’ll need to write some JavaScript to handle the show/hide function.

Thank you both for your feedback. I figured out how to build the table in HTML but still having some issues with the show/hide function.

I tried this workaround 

but it doesn't seem to support tables or at least I'm not quite sure how to specify where the hidden text starts and ends for each table row.

I've had more luck using <details> but have only been able to do one of two things:

1. Clicking on "read more" expands the hidden text within the same cell (and not on a separate and merged table row).

2. Getting the hidden text to expand on a separate and merged row by moving the "read more" text to a new table row.

Do I need some JavaScript to get the "read more" button to expand the hidden text along a new full table row? And then hide again once "read less" is selected?

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <table border="1">
    <td>Title 1</td>
    <td>Price 1</td>
    <summary>Read more 1</summary>
    Hidden text 1.
    <td>Buy now 1</td>
    <td>Title 2</td>
    <td>Price 2</td>
    <td>Read more 2</td>
    <td>Buy now 2</td>
    <td colspan="4">
    <summary>Read more 2</summary>
    <p> Hidden text 2.</p>
