Smaller tables

pwillard
Some of my tables are rather long and needing to add an extra <cr><blank line> for everyline seems excessively "white-spacey".  

Would it be possible to just use a another "|" at the end, just before a <cr>, to indicate an 'end of a table row'?

Could you give us a snippet of your long table?

Then explain how adding some symbol at the end of a table row would make your table shorter?

Here is my current table:

Pastebin Link

The table becomes quite tall just to make sure new rows are created... and I know that a trailing "|" will create a new cell on the current row... but if the only thing between the | and the end of the line is whitespace or no-space, why not have it be equal to New Row marker?

If you need to make SURE an empty cell got created at the end of a line... you might use ||<cr> to mark it.

Yeah, I'm just spit-balling because the extra empty line makes my tables taller.

You don't need to double space between the rows. As long as your lines end with CRLF or LF.

Check your text editor. I have mine set to UTF-8 and CRLF

This works:

[width="75%",align="center"]
[cols="30,30,40"]

Note:  This works... but differs from the official documentation.

I've created a PR https://github.com/asciidoctor/asciidoctor.org/pull/653 to update the documentation.
