Tables in posts

Can we have the ability to create tables? Right now, according to this answer tables are not on the list of things allowed in posts, which is a shame because I can see many uses for them, such as the many, many, many questions about spreadsheets over on Software[1]

I'd also use them to create conjugation tables on questions such as this one on Languages.

A way to use Markdown for tables would be great, such as in GitHub flavored Markdown, but I'd be fine with just writing html tables.

Hm, github flavoured markdown tables show up in the previews, but they don't seem to render when posted. Razetime‭ 3 months ago

@Razeltime Yeah, the library the preview uses is different from the library the server uses, which results in those odd disparities where you think something looks right but actually the server creates something else. Moshi‭ 3 months ago

You can now use tables in HTML or Markdown.


See an example with Markdown:

| Latin  	| English 	| Spanish 	| Catalan 	|
|--------	|---------	|---------	|---------	|
| filum  	| thread  	| hilo    	| fil     	|
| filius 	| son     	| hijo    	| fill    	|
| furnus 	| oven    	| horno   	| forn    	|

That renders like this:

Latin English Spanish Catalan
filum thread hilo fil
filius son hijo fill
furnus oven horno forn
