wiki-tables extra

The wiki-tables extra provides support for Google Code wiki-style tables as per http://code.google.com/p/support/wiki/WikiSyntax#Tables. For example, this text:

|| *Year* || *Temperature (low)* || *Temperature (high)* ||
|| 1900 || -10 || 25 ||
|| 1910 || -15 || 30 ||
|| 1920 || -10 || 32 ||

Becomes this:

<table>
<tbody>
<tr><td><em>Year</em></td><td><em>Temperature (low)</em></td><td><em>Temperature (high)</em></td></tr>
<tr><td>1900</td><td>-10</td><td>25</td></tr>
<tr><td>1910</td><td>-15</td><td>30</td></tr>
<tr><td>1920</td><td>-10</td><td>32</td></tr>
</tbody>
</table>

command-line usage

$ python markdown2.py -x wiki-tables FOO.txt

module usage

>>> markdown2.markdown(text, extras=["wiki-tables"])

Discussion

This was implemented in issue 66. See a (short) discussion of alternative Markdown table syntaxes (including those from Python-Markdown and PHP Markdown).
