Basic Instructions on Editing This Page

Wiki doc Syntax

Headings

The headings have already been created for you on this page. Preserve them unless they are irrelevent to the disease state or topic

Use the headings syntax below to preserve the hierarchical nature of the page rather than simply adding text in bold. You can modify headings or add to them as follows:

The overall heading of the entire page is achieved by surround the word with with a single equal sign (=) to indicate that it is Subheading 1 or the Title of the page.

The second subheading is achieved with a space and two equal signs surrounding the word. A note of caution, you must put a space (hit the space bar once) around each side of the word!: == Subheading 2 ==

The third subheading is achieved with a space and three equal signs surrounding the word: === Subheading 3 ===

The same method is used for the fourth and fifth subheadings.

Bolding

Place 3 single quotes like these ' ' ' on each side of a word to make it bold (don't put spaces between the quotes!)

Italicizing

Place 2 single quotes like these ' ' on each side of a word to make it italic (don't put spaces between the quotes!)

Lists and Bullets

To create numbered list start a new line with a * for a bullet, # for a numbered list, or use the : symbol to insert a tab. e.g,

  • bullet
  1. numbered list

Links
