Citation Stuff


Just my personal reference cheat sheet. The stuff I never remember when I need it, and which can be hard to dig out of the official Help pages.

<tt><nowiki> Put it Here </nowiki></tt>
Now try and figure out the wikisource for that line without looking! :-)
This is probably way outdated. See next item for a modern template style:

Quoting larger blocks of Wiki-Markup[edit]

Then just
  put it all
(colons for indention are optional, of course)

Displaying the </nowiki> tag in these howtos[edit]

The tag will just render as text if there isn't an "open" <nowiki> tag pending.
To show it after a <nowiki> tag therefore requires to:
  1. suspend the "nowiki-state"
  2. put the </nowiki> text
  3. resume the "nowiki-state"
Code: </nowiki></nowiki><nowiki>
