Wiki Markup Notation

Markup Notation

Content pages are easy to format with standard wiki markup and basic HTML code. When editing a page, you have a toolbar at the top of the edit window giving you instant access to basic formatting - simply hilight your selection and click the appropriate button. You may also manually insert formatting notation if you feel so inclined.

Here is the basic notation cheatsheet from Wikipedia Quick Guide
