  - ['a', 'b', 'c']
  - ['A', 'B', 'C']
mapping-series:

Rendering a table from a list of nested sequences using hard-coded
headers.

    ['One', 'Two', 'Three'],
    data['nested-list'],
    title='Table from nested lists',
    ) }}

Mapping Series Table
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rendering a table from a list of nested dictionaries using dynamic
headers.

    [('One', 'cola'), ('Two', 'colb'), ('Three', 'colc')],
    data['mapping-series'],
    title='Table from series of mappings',
    ) }}
