Help:HTML Entities

From OdleWiki
Revision as of 18:47, 28 October 2013 by Kenneth John Odle (talk | contribs)

You can enter HTML entities directly into a Mediawiki page.

Line Breaks

You can enter <br /> to insert a line break. For example, this

This line<br />has a break in the middle.

will appear as this:

This line
has a break in the middle.

<div>'s and span's

You can also insert <div> and <span> to organize inline and block-level elements.

For example, this markup

<div class="colthree">
List of items.
*First item
*Second item
*Third item
Numerical list of items.
#First item
#Second item
#Third item
Third list
*Another item
*Yet another item

produces this output:

List of items.

  • First item
  • Second item
  • Third item

Numerical list of items.

  1. First item
  2. Second item
  3. Third item

Third list

  • Item
  • Another item
  • Yet another item

To see which classes have been defined for your use, please view the style sheet.
