In one of my client's websites(Magento CE, the product description needs to have a table structured content with cellspacing and cellpadding applied.

Now when he tries to apply that style to editor from code and then he switches to UI view and then back to HTML Code view then the added cellspacing and cellpadding gets removed automatically.

Now he needs to apply those two properties badly, so anyone can suggest a way around this, is this an editor limitation in Magento 1.x versions ?

The magento wysiwyg editor will skip the cellpadding and cellspacing and the quickest way to resolve this problem is use the inline style.

you can use either of below formats:

<td style="padding: 20px">

or in your css:

table td {
    padding: 20px;
