Hello! Awwhiteman, you are invited to the Teahouse, a forum on Wikipedia for new editors to ask questions about editing Wikipedia, and get support from peers and experienced editors. Please join us! Sarah (talk) 06:18, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

In response to your feedback[edit]

Hi Awwhiteman, and thanks for leaving feedback. Technically Wikipedia doesn't use HTML, it uses the (very similar!) WikiMarkup language. You can view a list of the most common commands and their effects at this page.

Because of the number of editors and articles, Wikipedia has no set citation style - Harvard, MLA, Chicago, Vancouver and others are all supported. Personally I use {{cite}} templates, but it's down to personal preference more than anything. See this page for some of the options available.

If you need help at any point, feel free to leave a message on my talkpage or ask at the helpdesk.
