Is it possible to extend the wiki markup to allow tables? Right now, I make tables by using fixed width text (lines starting with a space), but it would be nice if real html tables could be added. Formatting in fixed width text can be quite a hassle, especially if the data contains links (and thus non-rendering characters like ), and the fixed width font does not look as nice as the normal font.
See EGC for an example of a page that I think could really benefit from tables :-)

I think this feature would be nice. Actually, I think a good way is to implement table functionality as a special template, although some extension to the template syntax might be needed.

Very nice, thanks! And very quick too!

Any support for rowspan, colspan?

Not right now. I have actually waited for a request, as I have no idea for a good wiki syntax for this feature. Same goes for aligning cells (the next request, I'm sure)

I find tables without borders a bit hard to look at. The text of different columns sometimes looks like it's stuck together. But I also think that having the borders arround individual cells looks a bit strange when there is empty cells (see EGC). Could we have lines drawn between the cells as a separator? Think LaTeX style tables.
