## Colors as Backgrounds

This wiki uses similar colour scheme on its Main Page.

 background:#f5fffa border:#cef2e0 background:#cef2e0 border:#a3bfb1 background:#f5faff border:#cedff2 background:#cedff2 border:#a3b0bf background:#faf5ff border:#ddcef2 background:#ddcef2 border:#afa3bf background:#fffaf5 border:#f2e0ce background:#f2e0ce border:#bfb1a3 background:#fcfcfc border:#cccccc

Please note that the colour for the border on the lighter boxes is also the colour of the backgrounds of the darker (title) boxes.

## Font size, color and positioning

• To color simple text, see example code
<div style="text-align:center;font-size:125%;color:#800000"><center>'''Knowledge from a Human  Perspective''' </center></div>


This is what you see on your page

Knowledge from a Human Perspective

• To color links, see example code
[[Personality Portal|<span style="color:#DE3163">'''PERSONALITY'''</span>]]


This is what you see on your page

## HTML tags

You can use some HTML tags too. However, you should avoid HTML in favor of Wiki markup whenever possible.

What it looks like What you type

Put text in a typewriter font. The same font is generally used for  computer code.

Put text in a <tt>typewriter
font</tt>. The same font is
generally used for <code>
computer code</code>.


Strike out or underline text, or write it in small caps.

<strike>Strike out</strike>
or <u>underline</u> text,
or write it <span style=
"font-variant:small-caps">
in small caps</span>.


Superscripts and subscripts: X2, H2O

Superscripts and subscripts:
X<sup>2</sup>, H<sub>2</sub>O

Centered text
• Please note the American spelling of "center".
<center>Centered text</center>


The blockquote command will indent both margins when needed instead of the left margin only as the colon does.

<blockquote>

Invisible comments to editors (<!-- -->) appear only while editing the page.

• If you wish to make comments to the public, you should usually use the talk page.

## Organizing your writing

What it looks like What you type

Headings organize your writing into sections. The Wiki software can automatically generate a table of contents from them.

Subsection

Using more equals signs creates a subsection.

A smaller subsection

Don't skip levels, like from two to four equals signs.

Start with 2 equals signs not 1 because 1 creates H1 tags which should be reserved for page title.

which should be reserved for page title.

• Unordered lists are easy to do:
• Start every line with a star.
• More stars indicate a deeper level.
Previous item continues.
• A newline
• in a list

marks the end of the list.

• Of course you can start again.

1. Numbered lists are:
1. Very organized
2. Easy to follow

A newline marks the end of the list.

1. New numbering starts with 1.

Here's a definition list:

Word
Definition of the word
A longer phrase needing definition
Phrase defined
A word
Which has a definition
Also a second one
And even a third

Begin with a semicolon. One item per line; a newline can appear before the colon, but using a space before the colon improves parsing.

Here's a ''definition list'':
; Word : Definition of the word
; A longer phrase needing definition
: Phrase defined
; A word : Which has a definition
: Also a second one
: And even a third

Begin with a semicolon. One item per line;
a newline can appear before the colon, but
using a space before the colon improves
parsing.

• You can even do mixed lists
1. and nest them
2. inside each other
• or break lines
in lists.
definition lists
can be
nested
too

A colon (:) indents a line or paragraph.

A newline starts a new paragraph.
Often used for discussion on talk pages.

We use 1 colon to indent once.
We use 2 colons to indent twice.
3 colons to indent 3 times, and so on.

You can make horizontal dividing lines (----) to separate text.

But you should usually use sections instead, so that they go in the table of contents.

## Using Footnotes

What it looks like What you type

You can add footnotes to sentences using the ref tag -- this is especially good for citing a source.

There are over six billion people in the world.[1]
References:
1. CIA World Factbook, 2006.

For details, see Wikipedia:Footnotes.

## Just show what I typed

A few different kinds of formatting will tell the Wiki to display things as you typed them.

What it looks like What you type

The nowiki tag ignores [[Wiki]] ''markup''. It reformats text by removing newlines and multiple spaces. It still interprets special characters: →

<nowiki>
The nowiki tag ignores
[[Wiki]] ''markup''.
It reformats text by
removing
newlines    and multiple
spaces.
It still interprets special
characters: &rarr;
</nowiki>

The pre tag ignores [[Wiki]]
''markup''.
It also doesn't     reformat
text.
It still interprets special
characters: →

<pre>
The pre tag ignores [[Wiki]]
''markup''.
It also doesn't     reformat
text.
It still interprets special
characters: &rarr;
</pre>


Leading spaces are another way to preserve formatting.

Putting a space at the
beginning of each
line stops the text
from being
reformatted.  It still
interprets Wiki
markup and special
characters: →

## Images, tables, video, and sounds

After uploading, just enter the filename, highlight it and press the "embedded image"-button of the edit_toolbar.

This will produce the syntax for uploading a file [[Image:filename.png]]

This is a very quick introduction. For more information, see:

What it looks like What you type

A picture, including alternate text:

You can put the image in a frame with a caption:

A picture, including alternate text:

[[Image:Wiki.png|This Wiki's logo]]

The image in a frame with a caption:
[[Image:Wiki.png|frame|This Wiki's logo]]


A link to Wikipedia's page for the image: Image:Wiki.png

Or a link directly to the image itself: Media:Wiki.png

A link to Wikipedia's page for the image:
[[:Image:Wiki.png]]

Or a link directly to the image itself:
[[Media:Wiki.png]]


Use media: links to link directly to sounds or videos

Use '''media:''' links to link
directly to sounds or videos

This is
a table
{| border="1" cellspacing="0"
! This
! is
|-
| a

## Mathematical formulas

You can format mathematical formulas with TeX markup.

What it looks like What you type

$\sum_{n=0}^\infty \frac{x^n}{n!}$
