Text Formatting Rules

Leave blank lines between paragraphs. Use [[BR]] to insert linebreaks into paragraphs.

Centered text needs arrows around it. Otherwise it is "left-justified" in layout. To write italics, enclose the text in double single-quotes. (Single double-quotes looks remarkably similar, but will not italicise text.) For bold text, enclose the text in triple single-quotes. Underlined text needs a double underscore on each side. You get superscripted text by enclosing it in caret characters, and subscripts have to be embedded in double commas. <s>Strikethrough</s> text needs two dashes and an X.

Examples

1. To get "I am centered." to appear in the middle of the line, you must type:

-->I am centered.<--
Your result will be this:

I am centered.

2. To change the sentance "I am not available." to read "I am <s>not</s> available.", you must add two dashes and an X around the word "not" like so:
I am --XnotX-- available.
3. To insert text (inline) without reformatting in a monospace font, use three curly braces like this:
{{{'''No''' markup here!}}}

Your result will be this: '''No''' markup here!

*note: To show an example of code (unformatted text) in a rectangular window like how these examples of code are shown to you, put the three "opening" curly braces at the end of the line immediately above the code and the three "closing" curly braces at the beginning of the line immediately below the code.

4. Block of mixed code example. The first section is the code and the resulting section shows how it renders on the page: === CODE ===

__Mixing__ ''italics'' and '''bold''':
 * '''''Mix''' at the beginning''
 * '''''Mix'' at the beginning'''
 * '''Mix at the ''end'''''
 * ''Mix at the '''end'''''

You might recall ''a''^2^ `+` ''b''^2^ `=` ''c''^2^ from your math lessons, 
unless your head is filled with H,,2,,O.
=== EXAMPLE DISPLAY BELOW === Mixing italics and bold:
  • Mix at the beginning
  • Mix at the beginning
  • Mix at the end
  • Mix at the end

You might recall a2 `+` b2 `=` c2 from your math lessons, unless your head is filled with H2O.
