Use of $$ tags should be OK
Here is a formula: . We can also make regular wiki links, and so on: WorkingWiki.
Wiki headers work
HTML headers also work
Avoid the use of source-file tags inside .wikitext files
They are not supported, and seem confusing.
project-file tags are fine, on the other hand:
Possible uses include:
- develop simple documents in wikitext, and write scripts to convert them to printable output formats under WW. Wikitext parsing is hard, though, and maybe best left to MediaWiki.
- develop simple documents in some other markup, and write scripts to convert them to wikitext for display on the wiki.
- process data and output wikitext files that look good included on wiki pages. We are doing this now on some of the lalashan wikis.
