Use of wide tables on Wikitree

+4 votes

New to Wikitree. Please excuse long-windedness of this question. I created a free-space profile Wide Tables to describe my intended approach to wide tables (particularly Census information). The main points are that I propose:

1. Wrapping the census table in a <div> block to make horizontally scrollable on overflow.
2. Placing the census table in a free-space profile and linking to this from profiles of individuals recorded on the census.

Are there any problems with this approach? 

I have a lot of stuff to bring over into Wikitree and want to get things right before the "migration".

The "Wide Tables" free-space mentioned above gives more info and contains links to an example of this approach.

Many Thanks.

If you do use a dif on a space page, always add the {{clear}} template at the end of the edit page.

The dif 's are sort of tolerated for space pages where a little more freedom is allowed, however it is a big NO on personal profiles.
Thanks Louis,

I found: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Clear

I would never consider floating a div on Wikitree, but  perhaps other people on free-space trusted list that edit the free-space profile might try to do so. Will investigate further!
