 +==== How to create a carriage return ====
 +
 +You can create one by either double spacing (that is, putting a blank line between the lines of text), or like this:
 +<​code>​
 +Put two backslash characters: \\ at the end of your line
 +</​code>​
 +Effect:\\
 +First Line\\
 +Second Line
 +
 +
 +==== How To Create a Page Link ====
 +
 +If you want to create a link to text in the page, try this:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +Here is your link code - swap "​wiki_tips"​ for the name of the page:
 +[[wiki_tips#​A_Header]]
 +[[wiki_tips#​Another_Header]]
 +
 +
 +Finally, create a header somewhere; headers are also link anchors:
 +(A Header has at least two equal signs around it.)  //You can only link to headers.//
 +===A Header===\\
 +==Another Header==
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Result:\\
 +[[wiki_tips#​A_Header]]\\
 +[[wiki_tips#​Another_Header]]
 +
 +===A Header===
 +==Another Header==
 +
 +==== How to Post Code ====
 +
 +Now, you can't just plop your tex code onto the page, else the wiki will interpret it as wiki formatting code.\\
 +Instead, put your code in code tags like these <​html><​code lua> ​ ...  </​code></​html>​\\
 +Whatever is between the code tags will get rendered literally, and some bit of colour syntax highlighting will even get applied!
 +
 +If you just want to "​codify"​ inline, a single character or word, wrap the words in html tags: <​code><​html>​some word</​html></​code> ​
 +...but be sure to close it.  The effect is <​html>​like this</​html>​.
 +
 +
 +==== How to Colour Your Text ====
 +To colour your text, use <​html><​color></​html>​ tags:
 +<​code>​
 +<color blue>​Blue Text</​color>​
 +<color /​lightgrey>​Text with Background Colour</​color>​
 +<color blue/​lightgrey>​Blue Text with Background Colour</​color>​
 +</​code>​
 +Result:\\
 +<color blue>​Blue Text</​color>​\\
 +<color /​lightgrey>​Text with Background Colour</​color>​\\
 +<color blue/​lightgrey>​Blue Text with Background Colour</​color>​
