Pipe syntax tutorial

How to create a table

Tables are much easier to be created on Wikis in comparison to using HTML table syntax. In this section we will learn how to create simple tables on WikiEducator.
Although HTML table syntax also works, special Wikicode can be used as a shortcut to create a table. The pipe (vertical bar) codes function exactly the same as HTML table markup, so a knowledge of HTML table code will help in understanding pipe code. The shortcuts are as follows:

An example table
First header Second header
upper left   right side
