I have working code for importing HTML , sliding the html code into the middle of a DOCX document and outputting. All well and good.

What Im having is an issue with tables and the space between tables.

Take for example:

<!DOCTYPE html >
<table border="1"><tr><td>Table 1</td></tr></table>
<table border="1"><tr><td>Table 2</td></tr></table>

When output the tables in the docx have no space between them - good, thats the same as the HTML if viewed.
If I put a
or css margins I end up with too much space between the tables.

Im looking for a workaround so that the space between the tables is just one empty line, rather than one huge empty line. Ive tried paragraph linespacing feeding directly into the control after I have imported the HTML into a raddocument but that just seems to affect overall line-spacing, even within the table itself.

I just want a single empty line. If I use the radrichtext box editor and press SHIFT+ENTER and delete the larger line - it works but that means manual intervention and I cannot do this as its part of a mail merge function.

Any ideas on how to get around this issue? Thanks!

What I have tried:

br's, paragraphs, css margins, css table spacing

You can try to add a margin between each table using
table {
  border: 1px solid black;
  margin-bottom: 1em; /* Adjust the margin between tables */
in your style block.

tried that, didnt work in the telerik component. Found the solution below - sods law I find it shortly after posting here. But might be useful for others hitting the same bug.

Found out how to go about fixing it.
I'll explain the solution in a moment, but this is how I found it:
After doing a manual edit in a radrichtextbox and making it do a single line entry rather than a huge gap - I exported the contents BACK OUT as a HTML file and took a peek at the coding.

There were several CSS entries with a paragraph between each table.
It all boiled down to this,
a css entry:

.psmall { line-height: 1.15; 

then at the end of each table putting this:

</table><p class="psmall "><span> </span></p>

and theres just a small gap now between tables.
