Changing the width of column in Wiki markup table

I'm creating a table in the issue description by using   |   in the email body. I'm able to create a perfect table except  for the fact that the length of a column depends on the longest word. Is there a way to specify the column width while using wiki mark up ? 

 

Thanks

I think the easiest way to make a column wider is to include a couple copies of   or   until it is as long as you would like smile

Could you please give an example ? Right now I have ||ThreadID||TimeStamp|| so on .. Do I make this as ||ThreadID&nbsp|| ?

What I said is not correct I guess because it just printed out &nbsp. An example would be really helpful. Thanks

You forgot the semicolon (;), you have to put the whole thing   or   (by the way,   is a little wider than  ).

Beautiful! Thank you so much! :)
