How to format tables in QMRAwiki

<!-- For tables this is the border arrangment that we use all of the | symbols need to line up -->
<!-- {| starts the table   || defines new columns  |- defines that a new row is starting or the other one is finsihing -->
<!-- |} closes the table

{|                                                    <!-- These top 3 lines will not change other than renaming the caption -->
{| border = "1"
|+ '''Table Caption'''                                <!-- for a link use  [http://link.to.file.uploaded.xls '''Table caption''' -->
! Column A 
! Column B					      <!-- Headers are defined thusly and are automatically bolded and centered -->
|-
| A1                                                  <!-- Two ways to define cell entries -->
| B1
|-
| ''A2'' || '''''B2'''''
|-
| text or numbers go in (1,2,3,4,5) || rows adapt size to fit values <br/> starting a new line is easy too
|-
| colspan = "2" align="center"| merged columns
|-
| colspan = "2" align="right"| Right alignment
|-
| colspan = "2" | left alignment
|-
| rowspan = "2" | merged rows
| only for that column
|-
| Thus this column is normal
|-
| And you can add Greek letters || <center> α Α δ Δ </center>
|}
