There are four types of headers available:
surround text by = as in = Header1 =
surround text by double = as in == Header2 ==
- Don't indent paragraphs
- Words wrap and fill as needed
- Use blank lines as separators
- Four or more minus signs make a horizontal rule
- asterisk as first character for first level
- asterisk-asterisk for second and third level
- Use * for bullet lists, # for numbered lists (mix at will)
- semicolon-term-colon-definition for definition lists (so the following is generated by ;term here:definition here, at the beginning of the line:
- term here
- definition here, as in the <DL><DT><DD> list.
- One line for each item
- Other leading whitespace signals preformatted text, changes font.
- use HTML for colors: like this:<font color="red">like this:</font> or this:<font color="#ff0000">like this:</font>
- Indent with one or more spaces to use a monospace font:
This is in monospace
This is not
- colon -- works like <BLOCKQUOTE>
- this is an indented block of text. To really look indented you need a fair amount of text. Someone wise could type in the Gettysburg address or perhaps a few lines from Shakespere or the ancient Greeks, but you'll just have to make do with this drivel.
- Surround text with two single-quotes (') for emphasis (usually italics), so ''text'' puts emphasizes on text. Remember that's two single-quotes('), not a double-quote(").
- Surround text with three single-quotes 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:
will not work''
will not work''
- Hyperlinks to other pages within the Wiki are made by CamelCaps
- Hyperlinks to external pages are done by just typing in the URL as in: http://c2.com/, mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org, or ftp://ftp.uunet.uu.net
- Numbered hyperlinks to external pages are done by surrounding it with square brackets like this: [http://www.wcsb.org/] , results in: 
- You can name the links by providing the link a space and then the name, all within square brackets: [PhpWiki home page] is produced by [http://phpwiki.sourceforge.net/ PhpWiki home page]
- URLs ending with .png, .gif, .jpg, .bmp, or ,jpeg are automatically inlined: , and
- You can suppress wiki formatting, linking to references and URLs, etc. by surrounding the text with <nowiki></nowiki> tags, e.g. NotLinkedAsWikiName, http://not.linked.to/
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, but we really don't want to. Note that this feature is disabled by default.
