If you are interested, see here or just create one with the editor and see what changes in WikiText result in.

Some basic explanations:

  • Cellspacing describes the space between the cells in the tables in pixels
  • Cellpadding describes the space between the cells' borders and the text inside them
  • Width describes the tables width. Note that it is possible to give cells a specific width which will be used for all the cells in a column.
