Simple Table Message Box

To create a simple table message box, please use the following code:

{|border="1" align="center"
|align="center"|'''Title'''
|-
|Simple ''message'' here
|}

This will result in...

Title
Simple message here


Basic Table Commands

(Commands borrowed from MediaWiki Help)

{|
table start
|+
table caption, optional; only between table start and first table row
|-
table row, optional on first row -- wiki engine assumes the first row
! 
table header cell, optional. Consecutive table header cells may be added on same line separated by double marks (!!) or start on new lines, each with its own single mark (!).
|
table data cell, required! Consecutive table data cells may be added on same line separated by double marks (||) or start on new lines, each with its own single mark (|).
|}
table end

You can also add attributes to the table and to each cell.

For instance...

{|align="center"

Aligns the whole table to the center of the screen

|align="right"

Aligns the text to the right side of the cell

|style="color:green;"

Makes the text color green

|style="background:yellow;color:blue;"

Makes the background yellow and the text color blue

Applying the style and align commands inside the "|" cell will only affect the specific cell. Applying the commands following the "{|" line will apply to the whole table.
