First, from http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/ConditionalMarkup:

    Any (:if:) automatically terminates the previous one, thus 
    markup can be easily cased (and are not nested):

        (:if enabled AuthPw:)* You're logged in
        (:if auth read:)* You can read
        (:if auth edit:)* You can edit
        (:if auth upload:)* You can upload

As a general rule, markups in PmWiki are not nesting markups.  
Thus, just as a (:table:) directive closes any previously active 
table, an (:if:) directive closes any previously active (:if:).
