What is meta?
Here's how it works:

This question already has an answer here:

When posting a question on Stack Overflow where I am inserting a table it keeps coming out in the following format:


1|20111020 2|20111020 3|20111020 4|20111020 5|20111020

How can I do this correctly so someone doesn't have to keep editing my posts? I have looked at the advanced help but can't see the answer?
