Markdown tables support
As the official Markdown documentation
states, Markdown does not provide any special syntax for tables. Instead it
uses HTML <table> syntax. But there exist Markdown syntax
extensions which provide additional syntax for creating simple tables.
One of the most popular is Markdown Here — an extension for
popular browsers which allows you to easily prepare good-looking e-mails
using Markdown syntax.
Similar table syntax is used in the Github Flavored Markdown, in
short GFM tables.
GFM Markdown table syntax is quite simple. It does not allow row or cell
spanning as well as putting multi-line text in a cell. The first row is
always the header followed by an extra line with dashes "-" and optional
colons ":" for forcing column alignment.
| Tables | Are | Cool |
| col 1 is | left-aligned | $1600 |
| col 2 is | centered | $12 |
| col 3 is | right-aligned | $1 |
If you want to keep the table for any future editing click the
