Template:Aligned table/doc

From MattWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The purpose is of this template is for generating simple tables in locations where standard table markup is either not possible, without significant use of the {{!}} magic word (e.g., with a {{sidebar}} template), or cumbersome (due to the repetitive use of specification of the same style statement in each row). This template should not be used to replace standard table markup in articles. This template is meant to be complimentary to {{infobox}} or {{sidebar}}, and not a replacement for {{infobox}} or {{sidebar}}.

A simpler method to include a table in a template that does not directly support table markup is to create the table in a sub-template using standard markup and transclude it.
