Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just edited my careers page, and I added a table in markdown. I know markdown is only partially supported and I kind of expected it not to work, but the preview rendered it exactly like I wanted, so I got excited. Upon saving, however, my description looks like a tornado hit it.

Simply adding


will show you that they're not working correctly.

  1. Are tables supposed to be supported or not?
  2. At any rate, shouldn't the preview match the end result?
  3. Is there some better way to do tables in markdown that I'm unaware of?

EDIT: Also... I just tried exporting to PDF and it looks correct.

Tables are not supported. It should not have rendered in the preview :\ – David Fullerton Jun 21 '12 at 19:21
@DavidFullerton It renders them correctly in the PDF as well... that's nice, but even more confusing. o_O – mayhewr Jun 22 '12 at 20:05

As David said in the comments, tables are not supported on your CV.
