Try out what you learn here in the sandbox.
The first line is the page title.
Separate your paragraphs by a blank line.
You can add style information, links, bulleted lists and more with tags.
A tag starts with
< ("less than" sign) followed by a single character
that determines the tag's meaning. For example, to make a Headline
you would enter
<H. Then (as with most tags) you would enter the end tag:
<> to mark the end of your headline. So here's our complete example:
It will look like this:
Unlike html/xml/sgml all tags use the same end tag
<> (unless of course
they don't have an end tag.)
These tags can be used anywhere in your paragraphs:
<<put a < in the text
<llink (that's a lowercase ELL)
<tthumbnail that links to the full size image
The following can only apear at the begining of the line:
<rhorizontal rule (no end tag)
<pstart a block of preformatted text. (Don't rewrap it, and display with a fixed width font.)
<*start bulleted list. Each paragraph that follows will display as a list item. To end the list, make a paragraph containing just an end tag (
<>). Edit the sandbox for a nice example of a list.
<iPut an image at the begining of the line, and wrap the rest of the paragraph to the right of it. (Note that the
<itag has a different behavior when it is is the middle of the paragraph. See inline tags above.)
<tput a thumbnail at the begining of the line, and wrap the rest of the paragraph to the right of it. (Note that the
<ttag has a different behavior when it is is the middle of the paragraph. See inline tags above.)
See examples and try these tags out in the sandbox.
