You can format your article by using wiki markup. If you are familiar with formatting in Wikipedia, you do not need to read this article. The syntax of wiki markup is same as Wikipedia’s. Following will give you more detail of formatting by using wiki markup.


Text formatting markup

Description You type You get
character formatting - applies anywhere
Italic text
''italic''
italic
Bold text
'''bold'''
bold
Bold and italic
'''''bold & italic'''''
bold & italic
Escape wiki markup
<nowiki>no ''markup''</nowiki>
no ''markup''
section formatting - only at the beginning of the line
Headings of different levels
=level 1=
==level 2==
===level 3===
====level 4====
=====level 5=====
======level 6======

An article with four or more headings will automatically create a table of contents.

Level 1
Level 2
Level 3
Level 4
Level 5
Level 6
Horizontal rule

Bullet list
* one
* two
* three
** three point one
** three point two

Inserting a blank line will end the first list and start another.

  • one
  • two
  • three
    • three point one
    • three point two
Numbered list
# one
# two<br />spanning several lines<br />without breaking the numbering
# three
## three point one
## three point two
  1. one
  2. two
    spanning several lines
    without breaking the numbering
  3. three
    1. three point one
    2. three point two
Definition list
;item 1
:definition 1
;item 2
:definition 2-1
:definition 2-2
item 1
definition 1
item 2
definition 2-1
definition 2-2
Adopting definition list to indent text
:Single indent
::Double indent
:::::Multiple indent

This adoption may be controversial from the viewpoint of accessibility.

Single indent
Double indent
Multiple indent
Mixture of different types of list
# one
# two
#* two point one
#* two point two
# three
#; three item one
#: three def one
# four
#: four def one
#: this rather looks like the continuation of # four
#: and thus often used instead of <br />
# five
## five sub 1
### five sub 1 sub 1
## five sub 2
;item 1
:* definition 1-1
:* definition 1-2
:
;item 2
:# definition 2-1
:# definition 2-2

The usage of #: and *: for breaking a line within an item may also be controversial.

  1. one
  2. two
    • two point one
    • two point two
  3. three
    three item one
    three def one
  4. four
    four def one
    this rather looks like the continuation of # four
    and thus often used instead of <br />
  5. five
    1. five sub 1
      1. five sub 1 sub 1
    2. five sub 2
item 1
  • definition 1-1
  • definition 1-2
item 2
  1. definition 2-1
  2. definition 2-2
Preformatted text
 preformatted text is done with
 a '''space''' at the 
 ''beginning'' of the line

This way of preformatting only applies to section formatting, and character formatting markups are still effective.

Paragraphs

Felipedia ignore normal line breaks. To start a new paragraph, leave an empty line. You can force a line break within a paragraph with the HTML tags <br />
