This page contains examples of UseModWiki's formatting rules. (See TextFormattingRules for explanations and samples of each rule.)
To see how any page is formatted, just follow the link "Edit text of this page" at the bottom of the page.
This is a simple sample paragraph. Paragraphs can have line breaks internally. To separate paragraphs, use a blank line.
Here is another paragraph. Note that HTML-special characters like <, >, and & are not special in wiki. (But with recent versions of UseModWiki, special sequences like < work in wiki.)
Do not indent paragraphs, or your text might look like this.
To create a horizontal line, type 4 or more minus/dash/hyphen (-) characters, like this:
Page, URL, Image, and InterWiki? Links:
You can link to a page by removing the spaces between two or more words, and starting each word with a capital letter. For instance, WikiName and TextFormattingExamples are samples of page links. Or surround a text with two square brackets to get a free link like [Sample Free Link]?.
Non-existing pages, like SmashingWordsTogetherExample?, 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.

Sample uses of the "" delimiter:
Bold and Italic Text:
To mark text as bold or italic, you can use the HTML and tags. For example:
Sample <b>bold, <i>italic, and bold+italic.
UseModWiki also implements the old "quote style" of text formatting, which is used on several wikis. Briefly:
Two single quotes are italics, three single quotes are bold, five single quotes are bold and italic.
Pre-formatted section here. No other link or format processing is done on pre-formatted sections. For instance, UseModWiki is not a link here.
This is the starting-spaces version of preformatted text. Note that links like UseModWiki still work.
