Help: Editing Rules

This WIKI website is based on the idea that Less Is More, so don't get too fancy. Just typing normal text with blank lines between paragraphs is often sufficient.

Tip: If you're curious how to format something in a similar way to a page that's already on the wiki, just click "edit" on that page, and feel free to copy/paste the formatting codes!

Text Formatting

These marks may appear anywhere on a single line, but do not nest:

  • ``words to be italics''

  • ```words to be bold'''

  • ````words to be typewriter''''


  • [[Title Of Page]] --link to page in same Wiki

    The second word on the following is the URL or filename; remaining words are optional, and are ALT text or name displayed on link:

  • /link <URL> <label>... --link to external site.

  • /link <page#> <label> -- link to internal site

  • /file NAME <label>... --link to attached file

  • /image <URL> <alt-text>... --embedded image

  • /imagefile NAME.jpg alt-text... --embedded attached file image

    Subsection formatting

    To make a gallery of thumbnail images:

       (image stuff here)

    To have a non-parsed code fragment on a page:


       (the stuff to be displayed as-is)


    These must start in the first column, and affect the entire line:

  • * Item in a bullet list

  • /section Primary Section Title

  • /subsection Secondary Section Title

  • /b words to be bold

  • /i words to be italics

  • /tt words to be typewriter

  • /bar --draws a horizontal rule (also used to separate blurb from body in Weblog and Calendar postings)

  • / -- (lone slash then space) forces a line break

  • /asis -- Similar to the <nowiki> tag, this prevents the wiki from formatting the text right after it.

  • /remark Similar to <!-- --> or // or some other "comment" symbol. It means ignore anything else on the line.


  • You may not use HTML tags; the characters < and > render as themselves.

    You may use HTML entity names for non-ASCII characters if you use both & before and ; after it. Example:

  • &Psi;&Upsilon; -- ΨΥ
