The following is an quick attempt to play with Wiki formatting. The instructions in the Wiki help pages seem to diverge from the local implementation (e.g. Taiwan help page says italics are obtained by using double single quotes, whereas the local help says to use underscores). I don't know enough about Wiki to know why; I'm just observing.

Wiki tips:

Formatting (see

Leave blank lines between paragraphs.

To write italics, enclose the text in underscores. To write bold, enclose the text in stars. Bold italic text needs a double underscore on each side.

The following is meant to work, but doesn't: You get ^superscripted text^ by enclosing it into caret characters, and ,,subscripts,, have to be embedded into double commas.

This doesn't seem to work either: To insert {{{ program source }}} without reformatting in a monospace font, use three curly braces:

Linking (see

If you enclose a sequence of characters in square brackets and double quotes ["like this"], that makes it a page name. Does it?

Lists and Indentation (see

To get bulleted items, start the item with an asterisk "*"; to get numbered items, start it with a number template "1.", "a.", "A.", "i." or "I.". Anything else will just indent the line. To start a numbered list with a certain initial value, append "#value" to the number template. To indent lists, use multiples of three spaces before the asterisk.

Headings (see

You can create headings by starting and ending a line with three hyphens and a number of + signs. The heading text is between those markers, separated by a single space.


To define an anchor write #AnchorName at the beginning of a line. To link to an anchor name use the Sandbox.MyTopic#MyAnchor syntax.

Horizontal rules (see

You can insert a horizontal rule across the page by typing four or more dashes. The number of dashes in a horizontal rule markup determines how thick it is, up to a limit of 10.

Tables (see

To create a table, you start and end a line using the table marker "||". Between those start and end markers, you can create any number of cells by separating them with "||".
