    table

    hello,
    I have a question about tables in Latex. I use tabular environment. I would like to have text in cell in my table in 2 lines.

    For example:
    --------------
    | something |
    | something |
    --------------


    now i have:

    ----------------------
    |something something|
    ----------------------

    i don't know which parameter i should use to change.
    ps. which parameter in tabular is for column size?
    i have such definition of my table
    \begin{tabular}{||c|c|c||}

    such as controlling table width and height

    I'm writing an exam where I want a table for the probabilities of a joint distribution. How can I do that in Latex?
    I also want X and Y on the sides with the values that they assume.
