I just made a tag-wiki for without realising that there is a very similar one for . Should these be merged or one made into a synonym of the other (are these independent?). I had assumed that was about floating tables, but now I realise that there was discussion here: Contradictory tag wiki entries: {floats}, {tables}, {figures} assumes otherwise, given the range of questions assoiated to the tag.

  • I am for merging, but only after I have finished cleaning up the {tables} tag (that will take a couple of days or maybe weeks to avoid flooding the front page).

  • I merged the two tag wiki entries, basically combining Stefans introduction and your list of table-related packages.

  • @lockstep Ok. Thanks. So the {tabular} tag will go away eventually?

    Yes, it will become a synonym for {tables} after Caramdir has skimmed (and partially retagged) the questions now tagged with {tables}.

I went through all the questions tagged and retagged the appropriate ones with (or similar). Baring any questions that I might have overlooked, and are ready to be merged.


I approved as synonym to the master tag and merged it. Now we've got 190 questions. Some questions have a duplicate tag now, I asked Jeff to run the tag deduplication again.

    Oh, that's great, no manual deduplication :-) Mar 8, 2011 at 10:00
