Alignment of Numbers in Tables

Jump to: navigation, search

I was just looking back at the table in the example in pie chart and I noticed that the numbers are left justified. I'd much, much prefer them to be right justified. I looked around (OK, only a tiny bit) to see if I could find an example with right justified entries, but didn't find one. Do you know how to do it?

Also, can you recommend a good reference to help a beginner learn how to personalize tables?

Please see: Help:Tables

I've also been working on personalising tables. Please see "Horizontal aligning content in cells" in page User:Chela5808/Tables. I transcribed an article (from wikipedia) of sortable and collapsable tables.

If you can't see the codes, just switch to edit mode.

Help:Tables...right, couldn't be more obvious. Also good idea to keep track of reference info and stuff you've figured out in a testing laboratory. I'm starting to see how the table connects to the code. Also, I see how the different formatting in the long jump table works -- use a double slash to delineate when cell entries for a row are all on one line.

Thanks for fixing the alignment. I totally get how you did it. One global command (right justify) and then overrides inserted for each row label.

Thanks.
