      ||  __Name__               |v __Cost__   |v __Notes__
      | __First__   | __Last__
      |> Jeff       |< Dairiki   |^  Cheap     |< Not worth it
      |> Marco      |< Polo      | Cheaper     |< Not available
will generate
 Name   Cost   Notes 
 First   Last 
 Jeff   Dairiki   Cheap   Not worth it 
 Marco   Polo   Cheaper   Not available 
Note that multiple |'s lead to spanned columns, and v's can be used to span rows. A > generates a right justified column, < a left justified column and ^ a centered column (which is the default.)
With the new TextFormatingsRules? tables are only supported with the OldStyleTablePlugin.

See MagicPhpWikiURLs for gory details on how to write various kind of wiki maintainance links. (deprecated)


Footnotes:

[1] By using [1] a second time (in the first column) the footnote itself is defined. You may refer to a footnote as many times as you want, but you may only define it once on the page. Note the the [1] in the footnote links back to the first reference, if there are multiple references there will be +'s after the [1] which will link to the other references. (References which come after the footnote definition will not be linked to.)
