You can create your new wiki page by adding your proposed title to the end of
http://etec.ctlt.ubc.ca/510wiki/
in the URL field of your web browser. For example
http://etec.ctlt.ubc.ca/510wiki/JeffMiller
If there is no existing page by that title, then you are on your way...

Five essential mark-up commands

1. Use tags <i>italic</i> and <b>bold</b>.

1a. Use multiple single quotes. ''two single quotes for italics'' and '''three single quotes for bold'''

2. "*" asterisk creates a bulleted list

Simple lists:

* Text for a bulleted list item.
** Text for second-level list.
*** Text for third level, etc.

... looks like:

  • Text for a bulleted list item.
    • Text for second-level list.
      • Text for third level, etc.
3. Insert an image using a full URL, eg
http://static.flickr.com/30/37525515_47e262f5c5.jpg
