Note about cell separators and row separators in tables

Empty rows

In mediawiki, rowshifts "|-" with no cells between them are now merged as if there was only one. I think one should get empty rows between them instead.

The meaning of "|-" and "|" in tables

In mediawiki "|-" stands for row-shift and not row-start, (that is, one doen't need to have the "|-" in front of the first row)

On the otherhand "|" stands for cell-start, and not cell-shift, (that is, one needs to have the "|" in front of the first even the first cell)

Examples:

1) This is OK:

{|
| text
|}

2) This is also OK:

{|
|-
| text
|}

3) However this does not work:

{|
|-
text
|}
