Description xmlizer 2004-08-10 17:08:00 UTC
in the documentation it seems to mention that 
{|
| A !! B || C
|}

have to be transformed in
<table>
<tr>
  <td>A</td>
  <th>B</th>
  <td>C</td>
</tr>
</table>

but it doen't work

may be a better syntax could be

{|
| A |! B !| C
|}

to be equivalent to

{|
| A 
! B 
| C
|}

> in the documentation it seems to mention that 

It does not say that on http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Table.

I think this is expected behaviour.  If you do something like this:
{|
! cell 1 || cell 2 || cell 3
|}
then all the cells in this row become <th>s.  Essentially, this means that if
you want a <th>, you have to start a row with a !.
Comment 2 xmlizer 2004-08-10 17:38:03 UTC
ok so the documentation doen't mention that...
But as <th> is a cell marquer and not a line marquer
it will be great to have this feature working
but it has to change the way it works now
{|
! A !| B |! C
|}
would look like
<table>
<tr>
  <th>A</th>
  <td>B</td>
  <th>C</th>
</tr>
</table>
and
{|
! A || B || C
|}

which have to be equivalent to

{|
! A !| B || C
|}

will have to look like

<table>
<tr>
  <th>A</th>
  <td>B</td>
  <td>C</td>
</tr>
</table>

instead of 

<table>
<tr>
  <th>A</th>
  <th>B</th>
  <th>C</th>
</tr>
</table>
Comment 3 Rowan Collins [IMSoP] 2005-04-24 17:07:52 UTC
I'm tempted to mark this "wontfix", because this seems to me a fairly unusual
requirement, and the below works fine:
{|
| A 
! B 
| C
|}

For now, I'll just mark it as "severity:enhancement".

I'm also removing keyword "parser", as writing a new parser wouldn't solve this
because it is not a feature that doesn't work, it's one that hasn't been written.
