Google Issue #56
Reported by alex.ev...@gmail.com, Feb 12, 2008

Perhaps a commandline option to pass to generate /hlines and /vlines for
an entire table in the current markdown format, or a way of writing them
by hand in markdown, i.e.

-------------
|Truth table|
-------------
| A | B | f |
-------------
| 0 | 0 | 0 |
-------------
| 0 | 1 | 0 |
-------------

The structure above looks pretty trivial to parse into /hlines and /vlines
(just replace each pipe with a /vline, and each dividing --- becomes a \ hline). Being able to do /multicolumn would be really great - but that
sounds considerably harder to parse.

I think that DokuWiki's table markup is elegant.

The document model doesn't support hlines or vlines so this change would be difficult.
