Jupyter Notebook Markdown Tables

Jupyter Notebook Markdown Tables

I'm trying to create a table in a Jupyter Notebook Markdown Cell.

My Table in Markdown looks like this.



However, when it is rendered it looks like this.


My understanding is the this is not rendered correctly.  The Update column and date column headers are being right-justified.  Rather than left Justified.

My understanding from the Markdown Table documentation is that if I really wanted a table that looked like this I should have put in a set of colons ":"  see below.


But I did not. SO I'm not clear why I'm getting the results I'm seeing.

I'm also not clear if I should be reaching out to the Jupyter Notebook community or the Dataiku community about such an issue.

Thanks for any input you can provide.

This is a conscious design decision in Jupyter, which you can trace back here

There's more discussion about it here (with possible workarounds, but unsupported by us)
