==Quick Reference for Text Formatting==
+
 
+
Here are some of the main text formats that are useful:
+
 
+
{| style="color:green; background-color:#ffffcc;" cellpadding="10" cellspacing="0" border="1"
+
 
+
|-
+
|'''Format Type'''
+
|'''You type this:'''
+
|'''You get this:'''
+
|-
+
|Headings of different levels
+
| <pre>=level 1=
+
==level 2==
+
===level 3===
+
====level 4====
+
=====level 5=====
+
======level 6======</pre>
+
An article with 4 or more headings automatically creates a [[wikipedia:Wikipedia:Section#Table of contents (TOC)|table of contents]].
+
|<!-- hack to prevent TOC viewing for h1 - h6 elements: their style is hardcopied here -->
+
<div style="font-size: 188%; margin: 0; padding-top: .5em; padding-bottom: .17em; border-bottom: 1px solid #aaa">Level 1</div>
+
<div style="font-size: 150%; margin: 0; padding-top: .5em; padding-bottom: .17em; border-bottom: 1px solid #aaa">Level 2</div>
+
<div style="font-size: 132%; font-weight: bold">Level 3</div><!--
+
--><b>Level 4</b><!--
+
--><div style="font-size: 86%; font-weight: bold">Level 5</div><!--
+
--><b style="font-size: 80%">Level 6</b>

===Creating Pages===
+
 
+
You create a new wiki page by first creating a link to the new page and then clicking on that link to create content.  In steps, that's:
+
 
+
1.  Edit a page, place the name of the new page in brackets and then save that page.
+
2.  The new page link will appear in red.  Click on it and you will go to the editor for the new page.
+
3.  Add content and save the new page.

==How to Use Discussion / Talk Pages==
+
 
+
:When you build a wiki page with others, it helps to have a place to carry on discussion about the page without cluttering it up with comments.  Every wiki page has a "Talk page" accessed by clicking on the "Discussion" tab for the page (You only see this tab when you are logged in.).  Use the talk page to identify issues and things on the page that need work.  The following file from Mediawiki has some good advice on organizing talk pages.
