Hi all,

Have a real frustrating table problem.

I make a table of data using | | | |
The table appears fine.
Then when I edit it with | | | | the whole table format disappears so I end
up with lines of text that are not in a table but have | | | | between them
(like this sentence).

Whats happening?
How can I make tables without them screwing up please?

:(

Anything before or after the | | | |, even a space, it will break the
table. And if you have anything non-tabley (text, html tags, etc), that
will also break the table.

Tables rows need to begin and end with |

And tables need to have an empty line before and after.

They also go funny if you do not have the correct number in each row.

I have started using html table definitions in tiddlywiki which work well and suits my structured thinking.

I moved to HTML tables recently so that I can apply classes (in my case
background colors) to rows and to individual cells, something that can't be
done with TW tables.

Particularly the bit that David mentions about accidentally having a space
character after a | is devious as you can't see it.
Also, good to know; to intentionally use multiple rows lines of text in a
cell, use <br>

<:-)
