Dear all,

I was looking at the FS/RDF mapping document...

and the table-layout really started bothering me. In my opinion, the  
fonts are slightly too big, the alignment is confusing and the borders  
are so 1995!

Can't we use the 'wikitable' class table layout, which is standard on  
wikipedia.org, or is there a W3 formatting guideline that prevents us  
from using this layout on our wiki?

If we add the following style information (with perhaps minor changes)  
to the wiki's style, we should get nice, clean tables such as [1]

** Table formatting
    table.prettytable {
       margin:1em 1em 1em 0;
       border:1px #AAA solid;

    table.wikitable th, table.wikitable td,
    table.prettytable th, table.prettytable td {
       border:1px #AAA solid;

    table.wikitable th,
    table.prettytable th {

    table.wikitable caption,
    table.prettytable caption {
