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 embolden the text.

5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize the text.

(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special --
the last pair are just ' left over ones' that are included as part of the text.)

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

3 apostrophes will '''embolden the text'''. 

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

(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything
special -- <br /> the last pair are just ''''left
over ones'''' that are included as part
of 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.

HTML tags

Template:Main You can use some HTML tags, too. However, you should avoid HTML in favor of Wiki markup whenever possible.


What it looks like What you type

Put text in a typewriter font. The same font is generally used for computer code.

Put text in a <tt>typewriter
font</tt>. The same font is 
generally used for <code>
computer code</code>.

Strike out or underline text, or write it in small caps.

<strike>Strike out</strike>
or <u>underline</u> text,
or write it <span style=
"font-variant:small-caps">
in small caps</span>.

Superscripts and subscripts: X2, H2O

Superscripts and subscripts:
X<sup>2</sup>, H<sub>2</sub>O
Centered text
  • Please note the American spelling of "center".
<center>Centered text</center>
* Please note the American spelling of "center".
The blockquote command formats block quotations, typically by surrounding them with whitespace and a slightly different font.
