Tables

Summary

The Tables extension adds the ability to create tables in Markdown documents.

This extension is included in the standard Markdown library.

Syntax

Tables are defined using the syntax established in PHP Markdown Extra.

Thus, the following text (taken from the above referenced PHP documentation):

First Header  | Second Header
------------- | -------------
Content Cell  | Content Cell
Content Cell  | Content Cell

will be rendered as:

<table>
  <thead>
    <tr>
      <th>First Header</th>
      <th>Second Header</th>
    </tr>
  </thead>
  <tbody>
    <tr>
      <td>Content Cell</td>
      <td>Content Cell</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
      <td>Content Cell</td>
      <td>Content Cell</td>
    </tr>
  </tbody>
</table>
