List of reference tables

You usually find a collection of reference tables in the back of almanacs, dictionaries and encyclopedias (or an index of them, if they're scattered throughout the work). As these tables appear, please add them to this index.

What we have in mind is listings or tabular information for quick reference, not narrative articles.
