Use simple text-only HTML when editing. For a new paragraph, surround the paragraph with the special paragraph tags. The start paragraph tag is <P> and the end paragraph tag is </P>. An example showing how to format this paragraph looks like this:

One thing you noticed I'm sure was the some symbols are typed in a strange way. The less than symbol requires you to type &lt; and the greater than symbol requires you to type &gt;. This is because those symbols are used as part of the normal tags. If you really must enter an ampersand, you can type &amp; to get it.

Other HTML tags known to work are the unordered list tags. The tag to start an unordered list is <UL> and the tag to end an unordered list is </UL>. Each item in the list begins with a special tag to mark the start of the item, and that tag is <LI>. There is no tag to end an item in the list. An unordered list looks like this:

  • Item one.
  • Item two.
  • Item three.

What you need to type in the wiki editor to get that is this:

<UL>
<LI>Item one.
<LI>Item two.
<LI>Item three.
</UL>
