# Is it possible to put “|” character in a vimwiki table cell?

vimwiki tables are auto-formattable.
This is very convenient but I'm in trouble when I'm trying to make this kind of table.

|       | Composites             |
| xy  | x followed by y    |
| x|y | x' or y (prefer x)|


As you see, this table has delimiter character | in a cell.
So when I'm trying to edit this table, it turns into as below automatically.

|      | Composites          |                         |
| xy | x followed by y |                         |
| x   | y                  | x or y (prefer x) |


I can bypass this problem by replacing | character with similar symbol character.
But I'm curious if there is another solution for this problem.

Quick google search using vimwiki pipe character in table and first result is a report in the VimWiki issue list: https://github.com/vimwiki/vimwiki/issues/281
That vertical bar, which looks like this │, is a decent substitute for |`, if you ask me.
