A much better version of this is here.
- Do not indent paragraphs
- Words wrap and fill as needed

- Four dashes at the left margin:
* asterisk for first level
** two asterisks for second level, etc.
* Use * for bullet lists, # for numbered lists (mix at will)
* semicolon space term colon Definition for definition lists, for example:
- asterisk for first level
- two asterisks for second level, etc.
- Use * for bullet lists, # for numbered lists (mix at will)
- semicolon space term colon Definition for definition lists, for example:
; This is the term : This is the definition.
- This is the term
- This is the definition.

Indented Paragraphs (Quotes)
: use colons at the beginning of the lineSample:
- This is a section of quoted material. It can be as long as you like. The difference between this and the monospaced format, is that it should automatically wrap around. It's using the same machinery as the definition list.
- Use doubled single-quotes (’’) for italics.
- Use tripled single-quotes (’’’) for bold type.
- Use doubles within triples to make Bold Italic
- JoinCapitalizedWords? to make references to other pages on this Wiki.
- or put other links in double brackets, like this:
[[Title Of Another Page]]
- To AvoidMakingReferencesToOtherPagesOnThisWiki, use an exclamation mark in front of the reference like this:
[[G]] BoomBoom http://gay.hfxns.org/pics/BoomBoom/thumb.jpg Drag Show 2007
- this will put the thumbnail in the right margin:
- It's called UseMod?
- HTML doesn't work
- < and > are themselves
