Do not use a table unless you need to. Tables complicate editing. For some content however tables help readability enough to warrant this extra trouble. Tables done in wiki markup are a little easier to edit than HTML tables, which also work. This page shows how to do table in wiki markup, from simple to complicated.
For more table-ish looking wiki markup cells can be listed on one line separated by ||. This does not scale well for longer cell content such as paragraphs. It works well for short bits of content however, such as our example table.
Extra spaces within cells in the wiki markup can be added, as I have done in the wiki markup below, to make the wiki markup itself look better but they do not effect the actual table rendering.
HTML attributes can be added to this table following the examples in other tables on this page but have been left out of the following example for simplicity.
| Orange || Apple || more
| Bread || Pie || more
| Butter || Ice cream || and more
