Quick Start

Welcome to the wonderful world of wiki, the benefit is that you can edit the page (and fix my spelling mistakes).

Here is a brutal quickstart because I am sick of clicking on the links below:

== Heading ==

You can type things pretty much as you would expect and the
paragraph will flow from line to line. Leaving a blank line
will start a new papgraph.

When typing you can ''emphasze text'', to '''make a point''',
but that stops being '''''fun''''' after a while.

=== Sub Heading ===

One of the fun parts of a wiki is linking:
* [[Page]] link
** Same thing as [[Page]]s and [[page]]
* [[Page#Sub Heading]] same as [[Page#Sub Heading 1=
** You could also link to [[Page#Sub Heading 2]]
* [[Page|a sample page]] also works

To link to the wider wilder web:
* [ uDig]
* [] <!-- shows up as [1] -->

:You can create a link to a page that does not exist yet

; page link : can be clicked to jump to a page
; external link
: will take you to another web page

=== Sub Heading ===

Hacking with html is mostly allowed - here is a code example:
<code>x = x   1;</code> although you probably want to break
out a pre tag for examples of more then one line.
