Outside of the normal HTML table syntax, there is separate wikisyntax specifically for tables. (both wikitables and regular HTML tables can be used on this wiki)

Tables are started by {| and ended by |}. A new row is denoted by |-, while a new cell is denoted by | on a new line and || if there is more than one cell on a line.

After the declaration of any new row or cell, any number of HTML attributes can be added in standard form, as long as they are finished by another pipe: |

The following is the basic syntax for tables:

{| style="background:yellow; border:1px solid black"
|+ Caption for the table
|- <!-- Start of a new row -->
| style =”width:75%” | The first cell || The second cell
|-
| An alternative scheme for cells
|Second cell
|}

This produces:

Caption for the table
The first cell The second cell
An alternative scheme for cells Second cell


Class="wikitable"

Inserting class="wikitable" will automatically apply borders, etc. to the table:


{| class="wikitable"
|+ Caption for the table
|- <!-- Start of a new row -->
| style =”width:75%” | The first cell || The second cell
|-
| An alternative scheme for cells
|Second cell
|}

produces

Caption for the table
The first cell The second cell
An alternative scheme for cells Second cell
