Cameron Kubota:
How to create lists:
There are two types of lists that the program recognizes, ordered lists and unordered lists. To create an unordered list, indent by two spaces and use an asterisk (*), then hit the space key and begin. To create an ordered list, indent by two spaces and use a dash (-), then hit the space key and begin. Once started, the program will automatically format to the list style. To start a new line, hit enter. Once on a new line, to make sublists hit the space key once, to revert back to main list hit delete button once, and to end the list hit delete until symbol is gone.

Daniel Rossie:
Using subscript and superscript:

You can turn that pesky H20 into H20 or that E=MC2 into E=MC2. Just put carrots around sub before the text you want subscripted and carrots around /sub after. Just replace the sub with sup for superscript.

How to create a link without a URL:

If you want a key word in a sentence to serve as a link to another webpage (such as another wiki page), you don't want to put a URL in the middle of the sentence. If the key word is Arsenic then the format is as follows: Arsenic

If you wanted to have the link go to a specific section under the Arsenic page on wikipedia, the format is as follows Arsenic

Please “edit this page” to see the formats of the two links.

Jess Coulter:
How to make text bold, italic, underlined, and monospaced:

To mark a word or phrase in bold use two asterisks (*) preceding and following the word or phrase.
To italicize a word use two backslashes (\) preceding and following the word.
To underline a word use two underscores (_) preceding and following the word.
To monospace a word use two apostrophes (') preceding and following the word.

Michelle Miguelino:
How to Section Headings:
Headings can be broken up into five different levels. If there are more than three headlines, a table of contents will be automatically created. To disable the table of contents, you must insert the following form:
~ ~ NOTOC ~ ~ (without the spaces).
To create a headline, you must use equal signs in the following format without the spaces:
= = = = Headline Level 3 = = = =
= = = Headline Level 4 = = =
= = Headline Level 5 = =

It will look like this.

Headline Level 3

Headline Level 4

Headline Level 5

How to embed and resize images to appropriate dimensions

You can embed images in a wiki by using two “curly brackets” before and after the link.

For example, I can embed an image of a graceful, elegant sea turtle into this wiki by including the following URL within two curly brackets “{”:

It will look something like this: madaerah.org_images_turtle_2.jpg

You can also resize an image to a given width and height by including the string of code “?WIDTHxHEIGHT” with numerical values substituded for “width” and “height” at the end of the URL. To reside to 100×100, I would include “?100×100” at the end of the URL, enclosed by a curly bracket.
