Paragraphs

  • Don't indent paragraphs
  • Words wrap and fill as needed
  • Use blank lines as separators
  • Four or more minus signs make a horizontal rule
  • %%% makes a linebreak (in headings and lists too)

Lists

  • asterisk for first level
  • * asterisk-asterisk for second level, etc.
  • Use * for bullet lists, # for numbered lists (mix at will)
  • semicolon-term-colon-definition for definition lists:

;term here:definition here, as in the <DL><DT><DD> list

  • One line for each item
  • Other leading whitespace signals preformatted text, changes font.

Headings

  • '===' at the start of a line makes a small heading===
  • '====' at the start of a line makes a medium heading====
  • '=====' at the start of a line makes a large heading=====

Fonts

  • Indent with one or more spaces to use a monospace font:
This is in monospace

This is not

Indented Paragraphs

  • semicolon-colon – works like <BLOCKQUOTE>

;: this is an indented block of text

Emphasis

  • Use doubled single-quotes ('') for emphasis (usually italics)
  • Use doubled underscores (__) for strong emphasis (usually bold)
  • Mix them at will: bold italics
  • Emphasis can be used multiple times within a line, but cannot cross line boundaries:

this will not work

References

  • Hyperlinks to other pages within the Wiki are made by placing the page name in square brackets: this is a page link or UsingWikiWords (preferred)
  • Hyperlinks to external pages are done like this: http://www.wcsb.org/
  • You can name the links by providing a name, a bar (|) and then the hyperlink or pagename: http://phpwiki.sourceforge.net/ - FrontPage
  • You can suppress linking to old-style references and URIs by preceding the word with a '===', e.g. !NotLinkedAsWikiName, !http://not.linked.to/===
  • 1, 2, 3, 4 refer to remote references. Click EditLinks on the edit form to enter URLs. These differ from the newer linking scheme; references are unique to a page.
  • Also, the old way of linking URL's is still supported: precede URLs with “http:”, “ftp:” or “mailto:” to create links automatically as in: http://c2.com/
  • URLs ending with .png, .gif, or .jpg are inlined if in square brackets, by themselves:

HTML Mark-Up Language

  • Don't bother
  • < and > are themselves
  • The & characters will not work
  • If you really must use HTML, your system administrator can enable this feature. Start each line with a bar (|). Note that this feature is disabled by default.
