How To Format Your Entries
This is a simple sample paragraph. Paragraphs can have line breaks internally. To separate paragraphs, use a blank line.

Page, URL and Inter-Wiki Links
You can link to a page by putting two square brackets around one or more words
[[Like This]] or
Non-existing pages, like [Demo Link Please Don't Actually Create This]?, will be displayed with a question-mark for a link. The question mark link indicates the page doesn't exist yet - follow the link to create and edit the page. When the page exists, a link to it will be displayed like this: How To Format Your Entries. You can also give the link a title,
[[How To Format Your Entries | like this]], which is displayed like this. Note the | symbol between the page name and link text.
The old-fashioned way of naming wiki pages was to SmushCapitalisedWordsTogetherLikeThis. This method is strongly discouraged here; in fact, we've turned it off since it's ugly.

Bold and Italic Text
To mark text as bold or italic, you can use the HTML <b> and <i> tags if you wish (e.g.
<b>bold</b>, <i>italic</i>, and <b><i>bold+italic</i></b>), or the traditional wiki method of text formatting:
''Two single quotes''for italics
'''Three single quotes'''for bold
'''''Five single quotes'''''for bold and italic.
Much as apostrophes are used to denote bold and italic, equals signs are used to denote headings. Thus:
= Heading 1 =
== Heading 2 ==
=== Heading 3 ===
==== Heading 4 ====
===== Heading 5 =====
====== Heading 6 ======
This is what's produced by the above:
Note those spaces between the equals signs and the text of the heading! It won't work otherwise. It also won't work if your numbers of equals signs are unbalanced:
not a heading
To display an image, use HTML IMG tags.
Please think carefully before displaying huge images on a page.
