Hi Debby,

It's possible, but it would be tricky to implement in a way that doesn't cause problems for various features. WYSIWYG editing on wikis can be troublesome.

Thanks, Chris. Just wishful thinking. I was trying to figure out a way of making a table interactive with other users without them actually having to go to the edit screen and fill in data using html with which they'd be unfamiliar and uncomfortable using. It might discourage them from using the table.
You mean a table, like <tr><td> stuff?

I'm curious: What exactly do you want people to be able to fill in?
Yes, <tr> <td>

An anotated census record which might take up too much space on WikiTree so it might not be feasible anyway.

For years I've been working on identifying everyone in a particular 1830 census record, writing a small summary of the families represented and placing links to information where possible. It would be a lot easier if other people were able to help with the project.
