There are two ways to construct tables in the wiki :

1.Particular formatting style with { and | in "wiki text"

{| border="1"
|+ The table's caption 
! Column heading 1 !! Column heading 2 !! Column heading 3
|-
! Row heading 1
| Cell 2 || Cell 3
|-
! Row heading A
|Cell B
|Cell C
|}
The table's caption
Column heading 1 Column heading 2 Column heading 3
Row heading 1 Cell 2 Cell 3
Row heading A Cell B Cell C

2.the wiki also understands html code for tables (i.e.
