Text in wiki pages can be easily formatted in the following ways:

Italics

Italics are created using two single quotes on each side of a block of text.

Bold

Boldface is created by using three single quotes on each side of a block of text.

Boxed

A box effect is created by starting the line with a space.

Lists

  • Bullet lists can be created using an * at the start of each line.
    • Nested bullets can be created using ** at the start of each line.
  • Enumerated lists can be created using a # at the start of each line.
    • Nested enumerated lists can be created using ## at the start of each line.
