Simple Table markup for Wikka


Note
This feature is under development and can be tested using the SVN trunk version. Note that the syntax for tables is likely to change until a stable version is released. Please do not invest much time in creating (advanced) tablemarkup yet!

I've hacked together a simple table markup for WikkaWiki; it is working it's way from a "layout" table markup to an accessible data table markup.

Currently it supports table header elements (<th>) and table data elements (<td>), cells spanning several columns and/or rows, table summary and caption, scope attributes for headers, table sections (<thead>, <tbody>, <tfoot>).

 

Basic Usage



Example:

||Row 1 Column 1||Row 1 Column 2||Row 1 Column 3||
||Row 2 Column 1||Row 2 Column 2||Row 2 Column 3||


The delimiter is two pipes (||).
 

"Advanced" Usage



Example:

|?This is a token summary, must be first line in table markup. PS is between single pipes!|
|!|The Caption||
|#h|
|=|First Column|=|Second Column||
|#b|
||First datacell||Second Datacell||
|2|A datacell spanning two columns||
|,2|A datacell spanning two rows||A cell on the right||
||Another cell on the right (due to previous rowspan'd cell)||
|#f|
|=|First Column|=|Second Column||


Enhanced features are enabled by putting modifiers between the pipes.

 

Known Issues


Ending the table with a || delimiter without a newline adds another cell/column. (ie: if there is no more content after the table, or if there is a space after the delimiter).

Wanted


I want input on bugs/issues - and on wanted functionality / suggestion on the markup.
