    What colour should the header be? I'm trying to stick with neutral colours because everyone has different colour schemes and all that.. :erm:
    :lol:

    White/Gray.

    Red stands out well. :p:

    Maybe something like this?

    I might have a go at fixing the table syntax up a bit, using my, quite frankly, awsome Wiki editing experience. :awesome: 'Tis a bit of a syntax jungle at the moment.

    FFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUU- I wrote the description of a primary key constraint for a NOT NULL constraint. Don't think I have tipp-ex either.

    ~£700 :ta: - A primary key has to be NOT NULL anyway, so I can modify my notes slightly without scribbling anything out or tipp-ex. :ta:

    A primary key doesn't have to be defined as NOT NULL because it's already contained in the definition of PRIMARY KEY, I think :dontknow:

    You have to do some jiggery-pokery to make it fit in with MediaWiki syntax. :holmes:

    That depends on the database in question, I think. So you probably shouldn't assume that a primary key is automatically not null. After all, assume will make an ASS out of U and ME. :p:

    You realise it's only supposed to appear for people using IE 6 or earlier, right? :p:

    You must be doing it wrong then. It works fine if you take out the conditionals entirely, I checked it myself.

    Just played around with it a bit, and it looks like the conditional tags won't work in MediaWiki. <!-- --> is considered Wiki syntax, so it removes it from the final version. Oh well.
