Help wiki syntax

The default wiki editor, available in edit mode, contains a number of edit functions in buttons above the free text window. In this wiki you will add a lot of content via forms. The buttons will not function in a form and consequently you will have to add style code manually. Remember to use style codes only when necessary. Use headers to divide your text in sections and use them in a hierarchy without gaps, e.g use 'h2' style syntax with subsections in for example 'h3' style syntax.

Help tables

Avoid tables! They are cumbersome and most likely too detailed. Do not use them to layout your text, it is against the accessability guidelines and most of the the time there is an alternative solution for the problem. In case of a data table which is necessary for the text, consider a picture of this data table.
