Line 1: Line 1:
 +==== 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 heredefinition 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__[[edit=this is a page link|?]] or [[UsingWikiWords|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/​|PhpWiki home page]] - [[FrontPage|the front page]]
 +  * 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__[[edit=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: {{http://​phpwiki.sourceforge.net/​phpwiki/​images/​png.png}}
 +
 +==== 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.
