You can format your text by using wiki markup. This consists of normal characters like asterisks, apostrophes or equal signs which have a special function in the wiki, sometimes depending on their position. For example, to format a word in ''italic'', you include it in two pairs of apostrophes like <code><nowiki>''this''</nowiki></code>.

== Paragraphs ==
+
 
+
MediaWiki ignores single line breaks. To start a new paragraph, leave an empty line. You can force a line break within a paragraph with the HTML tag <code>&lt;br /></code>.
+
 
+
== HTML tags ==
+
 
+
Some [[wikipedia:HTML|HTML]] tags are allowed in MediaWiki, for example <code>&lt;code></code>, <code>&lt;div></code>, <code><nowiki><span></nowiki></code> and <code><nowiki><font></nowiki></code>. These apply anywhere you insert them.

== Inserting symbols ==
+
 
+
Symbols and other special characters not available on your keyboard can be inserted through a special sequence of characters. Those sequences are called HTML entities. For example, the following sequence (entity) '''&amp;rarr;''' when inserted will be shown as <ins>right arrow</ins> HTML symbol &rarr; and '''&amp;mdash;''' when inserted will be shown as an <ins>em dash</ins> HTML symbol &mdash;.
+
----

{{note|Hover over any character to find out the symbol that it produces.  Some symbols not available in the current font will appear as empty squares.}}

See the list of all HTML entities on the Wikipedia article [[w:List of HTML entities|List of HTML entities]]. Additionally, MediaWiki supports two non-standard entity reference sequences: <code>&amp;רלמ;</code> and <code>&amp;رلم;</code> which are both considered equivalent to <code>&amp;rlm;</code> which is a [[w:Right-to-left mark|right-to-left mark]]. (Used when combining right to left languages with left to right languages in the same page.)

+
<<nowiki />nowiki /> can prohibit (HTML) tags:

* <nowiki><<</nowiki>nowiki />pre> &nbsp;&rarr; <<nowiki/>pre>
+
But ''not'' &amp; symbol escapes:
+
* &<<nowiki />nowiki />amp; &nbsp;&rarr; &amp;
