$\displaystyle \begin{tabular}{|*{2}{c|}l r| l}

\hline

centre & centre & gauche & droite \\

case centree & encore centrée & a gauche & a droite \\

% On trace 2 lignes

\hline

\hline

case centree & encore centree & a gauche & a droite \\

\end{tabular}$

LaTeX - Gestion des tableaux

I'm sorry for other people than arbolis, but it's in French

\hline is for horizontal line. The first command gives the table format, with columns or vertical lines, etc...

what do you mean a vertical one? that table is kind of vertical. did you mean horizontal? like:

$\displaystyle \begin{array}{c|ccc} x & 1 & 2 & 3 \\ \hline y & 1 & 2 & 3 \end{array}$

and of course, we can add more vertical or horizontal lines if we want. even an outline...

Pick google and write "latable." Download it.

I've found "Latable" on your forum. Seems an easy an nice maker of tables. When I enter some data and I copy them as Latex, I got

\begin{tabular}{llll}

x & y & z & a \\

1 & 0 & 0 & 1 \\

2 & 0 & 1 & 1 \\

3 & 10^{\frac{1}{9}} & 1 & 1 \\

\end{tabular}

Table entries in the tabular environment are treated as text, not mathematics. If you wrap the item 10^{\frac{1}{9}} with dollar signs, to get

\begin{tabular}{llll}

x & y & z & a \\

1 & 0 & 0 & 1 \\

2 & 0 & 1 & 1 \\

3 & $10^{\frac{1}{9}}$ & 1 & 1 \\

\end{tabular}

then it will typeset as $\displaystyle \begin{tabular}{llll}

x & y & z & a \\

1 & 0 & 0 & 1 \\

2 & 0 & 1 & 1 \\

3 & $10^{\frac{1}{9}}$ & 1 & 1 \\

\end{tabular}$.

But it will still look wrong, because the symbols x, y, z, a in the top row have the wrong font shape. You should really replace the tabular environment by the array environment, which is similar except that the matrix entries will will treated as mathematical. So

\begin{array}{llll}

x & y & z & a \\

1 & 0 & 0 & 1 \\

2 & 0 & 1 & 1 \\

3 & 10^{\frac{1}{9}} & 1 & 1 \\

\end{array}

produces $\displaystyle \begin{array}{llll}

x & y & z & a \\

1 & 0 & 0 & 1 \\

2 & 0 & 1 & 1 \\

3 & 10^{\frac{1}{9}} & 1 & 1 \\

\end{array}$.
