Who of you likes a nice and neat Wiki article? Hands up!
Do you also get the creeps if your Wiki article layout in edit mode looks fine, but I finally publishes something else?
Lately we got some feedback that table layout is one of the key layout features that's behaving oddly, in some cases.
So, I would like to ask for your cooperation and feedback.
On this Wiki forum, let me know your answers on the following questions:
- What's your experience on using tables in Wiki articles?
- Do you have articles that have trouble with tables?
- Did you experience trouble between preview and publshed article?
- Any suggestion to make it work?
Additionally we would like to find out the root cause for the table layout errors.
One of the usual suspects is the interpretation of the HTML code by the Wiki engine.
Another suspect is the publication of the articles by the Wiki engine.
Do you see differences between preview and publication? If yes, what are the symptoms.
Is the preview ok, but not publishing?
Is publishing OK, but not preview?
So I created a Wiki article to document the situations that have/cause the errors.

Hi Peter, Found an article that got the problem if that help, http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/13444.windows-server-2012-server-manager-troubleshooting-guide-part-ii-troubleshoot-manageability-status-errors-in-server-manager.aspx
I tried to fix it but I worsened it so I reverted it. So I will leave it that way for now so you will see it.

Please see this thread:
I cannot make any modification to the Wiki article, even outside the tables (even tags), without removing all formatting for all of the tables. This is the Wiki article (I had to revert all changes):
Also, I attempted to make a few cells have a background color of light blue in this Wiki article:
Once again, the modification shows up in the editor (before you click Submit) and also shows in the HTML, but after Submit it does not show up. In all cases, what you see in Edit mode never shows up in the article, or even worse, existing formatting is removed.
