Code

Sometimes it may be useful to insert code examples into content, such as shown on this page:

{{<html>

	<head>
		<title>See!
		</title>
	</head>

	<body>
		<p>
			HTML takes longer to learn!
		</p>
	</body>

</html>}}
<html>

	<head>
		<title>See!
		</title>
	</head>

	<body>
		<p>
			HTML takes longer to learn!
		</p>
	</body>

</html>

Lists

Bullet lists are easy to create, like so:

You'll need these items:
** Two asterisks in a row;
** A space; and
** Content.

You'll need these items:

  • Two asterisks in a row;
  • A space; and
  • Content.

Hyperlinks

Inserting hyperlinks is a slightly trickier affair. Each works in the same way, with different 'protocols' being selected. Any real internet protocol name can be used, and two special ones.

Linking to Standard Protocols

To link to a protocol, use the format ://, just like a normal URL with a description between the first ':' and the '//' (which are normally seen together). For example:

http:jaminjay.com//jaminjay.com/
ftp:All Amiga, all the time.//aminet.net/

jaminjay.com

All Amiga, all the time.

Linking to Images

To insert a picture, link to it with the special 'image protocol':

Clicking on the image:Discussion Icon//./icon/Discuss.png will take you to the discussion of, for example, a Quickie or Reference.

Clicking on the Discussion Icon will take you to the discussion of, for example, a Quickie or Reference.

Here, the description is used as the alternate and title text for those who don't or can't work with images.

Linking to Attachments

Any attachment available on the system can be linked to using the 'attach protocol' using the ID number of the attachment:

Check out the attach:ReEntry Widget Set//1 for VisualPrefs.

Check out the ReEntry Widget Set for VisualPrefs.


Special Characters

All this markup requires the use of characters which may be required for other purposes. All characters printed singly will print normally, except the asterisk and underscore.

Enter an __underscore__ or an ***asterisk***.

Enter an _underscore_ or an *asterisk*.
