The traditional Wiki way for enhancing text is to use a number of single quotes to bracket the bold text:
Use ''two quotes'' for italics. Use '''three quotes''' for bold. Use '''''five quotes''''' for bold and italic.
Use two quotes for italics. Use three quotes for bold. Use five quotes for bold and italic. However, the traditional way yields to more modern methods in this Wiki. Here you can use the HTML tags for such emphasis:
We can use <b>bold</b> text, <i>italic</i> text, and <b><i>bold-italic</i></b> text here.
We can use bold text, italic text, and bold-italic text here.
Finally, we can use HTML-style heading levels by bracketing text in sets of equal signs (note there must be a space on the inside of the equal-sign sets):
= Heading Level One = == Heading Level Two == === Heading Level Three === ==== Heading Level Four ==== ===== Heading Level Five ===== ====== Heading Level Six ======
Since each wiki page already has a level one heading -- the page title -- it makes sense to use heading level two or smaller for page headings. On the other hand, it is rarely necessary to use headings at all, especially on short pages.
