# Markdown

This wiki's pages are written in pandoc's extended form of markdown. If you're not familiar with markdown, you should start by looking at the markdown "basics" page and the markdown syntax description. Consult the pandoc User's Guide for information about pandoc's syntax for footnotes, tables, description lists, and other elements not present in standard markdown.

Markdown is pretty intuitive, since it is based on email conventions. Here are some examples to get you started:

 *emphasized text* *emphasized text* **strong emphasis** **strong emphasis**  literal text  literal text \*escaped special characters\* \*escaped special characters\* [external link](http://google.com) [external link](http://google.com) ![folder](/img/icons/folder.png) ![folder](/img/icons/folder.png) Wikilink: [Front Page]() Wikilink: [Front Page]() H~2~O H~2~O 10^100^ 10^100^ ~~strikeout~~ ~~strikeout~~ $x = \frac{{ - b \pm \sqrt {b^2 - 4ac} }}{{2a}}$ $x = \frac{{ - b \pm \sqrt {b^2 - 4ac} }}{{2a}}$^[If this looks like code, it's because jsMath is not installed on your system.

For headings, prefix a line with one or more # signs: one for a major heading, two for a subheading, three for a subsubheading. Be sure to leave space before and after the heading.

Text...


Links to other wiki pages are formed this way: [Page Name](). (Gitit converts markdown links with empty targets into wikilinks.)

To link to a wiki page using something else as the link text: [something else](Page Name).

Note that page names may contain spaces and some special characters. They need not be CamelCase. CamelCase words are not automatically converted to wiki links.

Wiki pages may be organized into directories. So, if you have several pages on wine, you may wish to organize them like so:

Wine/Pinot Noir
Wine/Burgundy
Wine/Cabernet Sauvignon


Note that a wiki link [Burgundy]() that occurs inside the Wine directory will link to Wine/Burgundy, and not to Burgundy. To link to a top-level page called Burgundy, you'd have to use [Burgundy](/Burgundy).

To link to a directory listing for a subdirectory, use a trailing slash: [Wine/]() will link to a listing of the Wine subdirectory.
