Layout

I don't think we can use a table for this kind of information since it would only contain 2 rows, but equally, h3 produces daft spacing, and '*Header **Value' doesn't really work very nicely either. Perhaps a vertical table?

What do you think about the table version i just made?
When this page is finished we could make a template out of it for the other trains. Does anybody know how that works? Pontiac

I know a fair bit about templating. Since this discussion seems to have been stale for quite a while, I decided to take the leap. Templates have been made (Engine and Carriage), and all train pages are being converted. The templates are designed to separate content from presentation, meaning that you can change how the information is presented without having to alter anything in the pages calling the templates and supplying the info. So, if you people want to quibble some more over what tables should look like, feel free to do so, and alter the templates.

Tables can be in HTML code

  • Below is a table in plain HTML code...

Cell 2

Cell 3

Instead of using every wiki function available i mean... Cadde
  • True, but for tables as short as the ones for the trains it is IMHO cleaner to use the wiki code (without the </ > symbols). But as i said, that is just MHO ;)
    What do you think about the layout as it is now in the Kirby_Paul_Tank idependent of the code behind it? Pontiac 11:30, 25 Feb 2005 (CET)
    • Additional note: The problem in the code i use (wiki-code) that makes it more complex is that i needed to set the table-background to white too. With your example it's the same BTW ;) There seems to be default background set somewhere?? Pontiac 11:40, 25 Feb 2005 (CET)
  • Kirby_Paul_Tank <- Changed the sample code to other colors and thereby reduced the code overkill. Is it now clearer/simpler? Pontiac 11:49, 25 Feb 2005 (CET)

Sorry havent been here for a while... I think the wiki code is good as far as more simple constructions but as for tables i see no point in getting involved in far less sophisticated methods... With HTML you have more control and can have more control... Plus if you dont like writing by hand use your favorite HTML editor and just paste the table code... Make sure to get rid of any uneccisary code though.
