In this subsection we cover creation of wiki tables

Syntax You get Explanation
Syntax for a simple wiki table with two rows and two cells is given below:

{| class="wikitable"
! header 1
! header 2
| row 1, cell 1
| row 1, cell 2

header 1 header 2
row 1, cell 1 row 1, cell 2

Here the pipe (vertical bar) codes function exactly the same as HTML table markup. The code |- marks the rows and | marks the Column. A row of column headings is identified by using "!" . The entire table is encased with curly brackets { }and a vertical bar character, | (a pipe). So use {| to begin a table, and |} to end it. Each one needs to be on its own line, as seen below:
