More styles?[edit source]

The module uses Lua to create the tables. Most functionality is obtained from the main module, but specific column formatting comes from the style sub-modules. The existing styles can handle a lot of different options. In case you need additional options it could be useful to create a new style. Note that some tweaking of an existing style could give you the functionality you need, rather than creating a completely new style. In case you do create a new style, you might want to refer to the Lua reference manual.
