Probably not.  I should probably note that wikistyles aren't
designed to work in lines defining table attributes, such as the first ||line 
above.  It would need to be either

    ||width=20% border=1 (:comment test:)
    ||table ||cells ||go ||here ||


    %comment% test %%
    ||width=20% border=1 
    ||table ||cells ||go ||here ||
