This time we are going to look at tables with Markdown.
You can create simple HTML tables with Markdown. Here is an example:
Name | Age --------|------ Fred | 29 Jim | 47 Harry | 32
This will create a table that looks like this:
Name Age Fred 29 Jim 47 Harry 32
You can apply normal formatting to the cell contents (using HTML) however it’s probably much easier for most of us these days to create advanced tables using the Atto editor and a more visual interface.
More Markdown magic next time!
