Is there any table tool or markup which can facilitate user presenting tabular data? As such user need not to combine "-", "+", and "|" to create a visual table like in this post.
As they're using Markdown for formatting, it wouldn't then be able to present it. There are some variants, like Markdown Extra, but they're not using it.
They will accept some HTML, but it's a limited list, and table tags aren't included.
An alternative to ASCII art is to upload an image. Simply create the table yourself (spreadsheets work well for this) and then upload a screenshot of the table.
