Twiki Shorthand

for Fudge Factor Authors

  • Headers are indicated by three dashes, followed by a number of plusses to indicate the depth of the header.
    • ---+ Top level... the article title
    • ---++ Second level... section heads
    • ---+++ Third level... sub-sections
    • etc...
  • Separate each paragraph with a blank line.
  • To display a word or phrase in bold type, put it in asterisks: *bold type*.
  • To display a word or phrase in italic, put it in underscores: _italic_.
  • To indent with a bullet, enter [space][space][space][asterisk][space].
    • Always start counting from the beginning of a line.
    • Use multiples of 3 spaces to start nested bullets.
      • That's 3-6-9-...
  1. Start items in a numbered list with [space][space][space][9][space].
  2. The "9" (or any number) will be replaced by the correct number, in order.
  • Tables are easily represented by dividing cells with vertical bars.
  • *Asterisks* around entries create header cells.
  • Multiple vertical bars (| Joe |||) create a cell that spans multiple columns.
    | *Header 1* | *Header 2*  ||
    | Strength   | Fair  | Only when in ogre form |
    | Dexterity  | Great | Only on Tuesdays       |
    | Pizazz!    | Legendary | Either ya gots it or ya don't. |
