Notes

Due to the simplistic parser currently being used, you need to be careful with how you format the table. The main requirement is that any '|' characters which mark a table boundary must have whitespace on either side. Conversely, any other '|' characters must not have any whitespace around them. For example, in the markup below there are two errors:

  1. The Number column does not have any whitespace around the '|' markers
  2. The Date column does have whitespace inside the macro

{table-data:My Table}
|| Text||\Number ||Date||
| {text-data:Text}|{number-data:Number}0{number-data}|{date-data:Date| format=dd-MMM-yyyy} |
{table-data}

Correct formatting would look like this:

{table-data:My Table}
|| Text || Number || Date ||
| {text-data:Text} | {number-data:Number}0{number-data} | {date-data:Date|format=dd-MMM-yyyy} |
{table-data}
