Thanks for considering my idea and replying accordingly, everyone. I
agree that having Markdown users meticulously craft tables with
Unicode box drawing characters[2] is impractical.

However, I am still very fond of David Wheeler's proposal[1] for
Markdown tables. Are there any existing implementations of [1] at
present? If not, I will try to implement it as a preprocessor (as
Waylan Limberg suggested) so that it can be used with any Markdown

cat | dw_md_tables | markdown > document.html

Thanks for your consideration.
