# Table Extension

The table extension provides a means for defining table using traditional markdown syntax, as shown in Example 1. It also adds the ability to create numbered and captioned tables as in Example 2.

Example 1: Example of stand-alone table using markdown syntax.

| Heading 1 | Heading 2 |
| - | - |
| Item 1 | Item 2 |

Item 1Item 2

Example 2: Example of table using markdown syntax displayed as a float.

!table id=table-floating caption=This is a "floating" table.
| - | - |
| Item 1 | Item 2 |


Table 1: This is a "floating" table.
