Wiki editing guide

Some notes, largely borrowed from Wikipedia

Basic text formatting

You can format the page using Wikitext special characters.

What it looks like What you type

You can italicize text by putting 2 apostrophes on each side.

3 apostrophes will bold the text.


5 apostrophes will bold and italicize the text.

(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special --
3 of them bold the text as usual; the others are 'just' apostrophes around the text.)

You can ''italicize'' text by putting 2 
apostrophes on ''each'' side. 

3 apostrophes will '''bold''' the text. 

5 apostrophes will '''''bold and italicize''''' 
the text.

(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything
special -- <br /> 3 of them '''bold''' the text as
usual; the others are ''''just'''' apostrophes 
around the text.)

A single newline generally has no effect on the layout. These can be used to separate sentences within a paragraph. Some editors find that this aids editing and improves the diff function (used internally to compare different versions of a page).

But an empty line starts a new paragraph.

When used in a list, a newline does affect the layout (see below).

You can break lines
without a new paragraph.
Please use this sparingly.

Please do not start a link or italics or bold text on one line and end on the next.
