Creating Subsections



New Line Demonstration

This will demonstrate how to insert a new line.
A single <br/> will act as the "enter" key. Empy line starts new paragraph

Creating Lists

  • It's easy to create a list:
    • Start every line with a star.
      • More stars means deeper levels.
        • A newline in a list marks the end of a list item.
  • An empty line starts a new list.
  1. Numbered lists are also good
    1. very organized
    2. easy to follow
      1. easier still



Centered text.

A horizontal dividing line: this is above it

and this is below it.


  • Emphasized text
  • Strong emphasis
  • Even stronger emphasis
  • You can use small text for captions.
  • You can strike out deleted material

and underline new material.

  • Suppressing Wiki translation by using <nowiki> </nowiki>
  • Random Symbols:

™ © ® ¢ € ¥ £ ¤

  • Pre tags
The pre tag ignores [[Wiki]] ''markup''.
It also doesn't     reformat text.
It still interprets special characters: →
  • Space in front of a line will prevent reformatting of text.
Putting a space at the beginning of each line
stops the text   from being reformatted. It still
interprets Wiki markup and special
characters: →


  • Use double brackets for links.
  • For links on the same site, just put the name of the page: MAGMA, PADRE
  • For links to images, use [[Image:NameOfUploadedImage]]: PADREGroup.JPG
