Help:Tables

While it is possible to create table via raw HTML, the wiki allows a simpler style.

Tables start with a curly bracket and a vertical bar character (a pipe) "{|" and end with a pipe and curly bracket "|}".

To start a new table row, type a vertical bar and a hyphen on its own line: "|-".

Each cell in a row is on a new line which starts with just a vertical bar character.

This input  
{|
|-
|AAAA
|BBBB
|CCCC
|-
|DDDD
|EEEE
|FFFF
|}
  produces  
AAAA BBBB CCCC
DDDD EEEE FFFF

There are lots of other options, but the simplest is to add borders.

This input  
{| border="1"
|-
|AAAA
|BBBB
|CCCC
|-
|DDDD
|EEEE
|FFFF
|}
  produces  
AAAA BBBB CCCC
DDDD EEEE FFFF

Change the leading vertical bar character to an exclamation mark to change a cell into a heading. The pre-defined "wikitable" style makes the borders look a lot better.

This input  
{| class="wikitable"
|-
!A
!B
!C
|-
|DDDD
|EEEE
|FFFF
|}
  produces  
A B C
DDDD EEEE FFFF

The pre-defined "wikitable" template can also be used, but must be matched with a "endwikitable".

This input  
{{wikitable}}
|-
!A
!B
!C
|-
|DDDD
|EEEE
|FFFF
{{endwikitable}}
  also produces  
A B C
DDDD EEEE FFFF
