A co-worker brought this to my attention.

Start with a table like this

%EDITTABLE{format="|label|textarea,3x30|"}%
| | Games | Finance | Sports | News |
| %GREEN% Migration sequence # %ENDCOLOR% <br /> _not required at this time_ | | | | | 
| # of space ids  | | | | |

Save it:

Click the Edit button:

Click Save:

Look at what happened to the GREEN cell content.

On the back side (Raw view) it looks like this

%EDITTABLE{format="|label|textarea,3x30|"}%
| | Games | Finance | Sports | News |
| %E</em>T_P_NOPGREEN% Migration sequence # %ENDCOLOR% <br /> _not required at this time_ | | | | |
| # of space ids | | | | |
<nop>

Workaround

I tried
  • bolding the header cells with =*...*.
  • ensuring that the upper left cell has something in it
to no avail

Then I tried replacing the TWikiML with HTML

| %GREEN% Migration sequence # %ENDCOLOR% <br /> <i>not required at this time</i> | | | | | 

So, there's a workaround. But this needs to be found and fixed.

In any case comething is wrong with the plugin: after editing the url returns to viewauth, and the EDITTABLE tag is no longer parsed: Item6008.

The problem on your bug is that the italic text is somehow rendered and the variable placeholder gets mangled.

I found that with a label cell:
  1. TML is stripped too agressively
  2. no space is written between TML and the hidden input field

Fixed this.
