  • CapitalizedWordsStuckTogether (or WikiWords) will produce a link automatically. In case you want to link to a topic in a different TWiki web write Web.TopicName, i.e. write Know.ReadmeFirst to link to ReadmeFirst located in the Know web.
  • You can create a forced internal link by enclosing words in double square brackets, i.e. write [[text formatting FAQ]] to get text formatting FAQ that links to topic TextFormattingFAQ. Text within the brackets may contain optional spaces; the topic name is formed by capitalizing the initial letter and by removing the spaces. You can also refer to a different web, i.e. [[Main.TWiki users]] points to TWikiUsers in the Main web.
  • Blank lines will create new paragraphs.
  • Words get bold by enclosing them in * asterisks
  • Words get italic by enclosing them in _ underscores
  • Words get bold italic by enclosing them in __ double-underscores
  • Words get shown in fixed font by enclosing them in = equal signs
  • Words get shown in bold fixed font by enclosing them in == double equal signs
  • Note for bold , italic , bold italic and fixed font text:
    • Make sure to "stick" the * _ = signs to the characters, e.g.
      • This works
      • _This does not get italic because there is a space between the last word and the underline character _
    • Example text to enter:
      • Writing *bold text* , _italic text_ and =fixed== monospaced text
    • Example text gets rendered as:
      • Writing bold text , italic text and fixed= monospaced text
  • Separator: at least four dashes at the beginning of a line: <-------->
  • List Item: 3 spaces and an asterisk: <   *>
  • Nested Item: 6 spaces and an asterisk: <      *>
  • Ordered List: 3 spaces and a number: <   1>
  • Definition: 3 spaces, the term, a colon, followed by the definition: <   term: definition>
    Note that terms with spaces are not supported. In case you do have a term with more then one word, separate the words with dashes or with the non-breaking-space entity, i.e. write Character&nbsp;Set: to get Character Set:.
  • Table: Optional spaces followed by the cells enclosed in vertical bars: <   | cell 1 | cell 2 | cell 3 | ... |>
