Since Wiki markup often ignores single \n, my proposal could be modified
to *allow* several cells per line.
However, I think the following is easily graspable:
| Bill Clinton
| Musical instrument
It's *long* in raw form, yes. But it's also clean.
| Name| Bill Clinton
| Musical instrument | saxophone
This is good too, but there's more work involved in finding the limits
between data. One could use spaces to set it out nively in raw form --
but then if the data changes the spaces change. It's a bit faffy.
I think my motivation stems on part form the rapidly growing table of
phonemes on the SAMPA page.
That also decreases the usefulness considerably. One
*cell* per line? You couldn't organize data in columns--you couldn't have a piece
of information with an explanation immediately beside it of what the information is, the
way we have on the U.S. Presidents pages, the countries pages, the various tree of life
pages.... You must have meant two, at least?
