Wiki Formatting Rule Summary
# Blank lines are paragraph breaks
# Bullets are "*" surrounded by two spaces at the beginning of a line
# Enumeration items are "#" or a digit and a "." surrounded by two
spaces at the beginning of a line
# Indented paragraphs begin with a tab or two spaces
# Hyperlinks are contained within square brackets:
# Most ordinary HTML works
# <verbatim> and <nowiki>
We call the first five rules above the "wiki" formatting rules.
The last two rules are the HTML formatting rules.
Formatting Rule Details
Any sequence of one or more blank lines forms a paragraph break.
Centered or right-justified paragraphs are not supported by wiki markup,
but you can do these things if you need them using HTML.
2. Bullet Lists.
A bullet list item is a line that begins with a single "*" character
surrounded on both sides by two or more spaces or by a tab.
Only a single level of bullet list is supported by wiki.
For nested lists, use HTML.
3. Enumeration Lists.
An enumeration list item is a line that begins with a single "#"
character surrounded on both sides by two or more spaces or by a tab.
Or it can be a number and a "." (ex: "5.") surrounded on both sides
by two spaces or a tab.
Only a single level of enumeration list is supported by wiki.
For nested lists or for enumerations that count using letters or
roman numerals, use HTML.
4. Indented Paragraphs.
Any paragraph that begins with two or more spaces or a tab and which
is not a bullet or enumeration list item is rendered indented.
Only a single level of indentation is supported by wiki.
Use HTML for deeper indentation.

The <nowiki> tag disables all wiki formatting rules through
the matching </nowiki> element. The <verbatim> tag works
