Mediawikie - Urgent Help needed

I am trying to create an oncall calendar on my mediawiki front page. On my previous (twiki) I  had the following and it showed up perfectly but it won't do the same thing on media wiki. If I  already have something like this on twiki. How do I do the same thing in mediawiki. Why can't I just copy and paste it? Please don't respond with just links....tell me how to fix it as I'm not technical enough to follow it. Please tell me step by step.

If you just want to build a simple table in HTML then just follow the following format..

<table border="3">
<caption>The table's caption</caption>
<tr>
<th>Column heading 1</th>
<th>Column heading 2</th>
<th>Column heading 3</th>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>Row heading 1</th>
<td>Cell 2</td>
<td>Cell 3</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<th>Row heading A</th>
<td>Cell B</td>
<td>Cell C</td>
</tr>
</table>

You can also use the Mediawiki edit toolbar to create tables.The toolbar is helpful to generate the necessary codings. Use the first button on the right of the toolbar to insert a table when editing a page, and away you go....!!
