Yep, that’s exactly the problem I had with markdown tables in glide. It doesn’t render them very well. If it spanned the entire width of the screen it wouldn’t be so bad, but it smashes everything together, and no amount of extra empty characters could make it look nice in my case. I have a lot of variable text lengths, so I need my cells to float and adapt to fill the screen appropriately. You can try padding with empty characters, but it won’t be a great result.
Yeah, I’ve noticed that other places as well. There’s several different markdown engines out there. I really don’t know if it’s the engine that glide uses, or the way it integrated into the glide architecture, or if it’s a homegrown solution, but every engine has it’s own subtle nuances when rendering markdown into html.
