<a name="whatisthis"> What is this ?

  This is the ZWiki version of a WikiWikiWeb (or wiki), which is a kind of
  collaborative website.  Wikis try to put as little as possible in the
  way of people sharing useful content in a manageable way.
  You can edit any page, add comments, and create new pages on the spot.

  Intuitive text formatting rules are used to simplify the process of
  writing and linking pages.
  The idea is to keep the text that people edit simple, so it's readable
  as is, and, most importantly, editable by anyone, without sacrificing
  attractive presentation.

  A zwiki site like this one may also function as a simple mail list.

<a name="ui"> User interface

  If you see "full", "simple", "minimal" links below, you can click them
  to choose the UI that suits you best (cookies required).  If you can't
  see one of the features described here, try clicking "full".

  Many links and form elements have ZWiki:AccessKeys (keyboard shortcuts),
  which are convenient if your browser supports them.

  You can set your user name, time zone and other things in UserOptions.

<a name="navigation"> Navigation

  Each page has a unique name, which is used for the title, url and
  hyperlinks between pages; these are most often made by joining
  capitalized words together. See ZWiki:WikiName.  Links like the last one
  (two wikinames separated by a colon) lead to another site.  In full
  mode, pages are arranged in a hierarchy.

  - To return to the front page, click the site logo

  - To see which pages link to this one, click the page title

  - To search all pages, enter text in the search field and press enter

  - To list pages by last edit time, visit RecentChanges (or FastChanges).

  - To see previous edits, click the "last edited" link

  - To see the page hierarchy, click the "contents" link (full mode only)

  - To jump to a known page, enter the first part of it's name after the
  last / in your browser's url field. You can ignore capitalization and

<a name="email"> Email subscription

  If you see a "subscribe" link below, you can subscribe to a page or
  the whole wiki to receive comments by mail. If configured, subscribers
  may also send comments by mail.

  - To receive comments (not edits) by mail, click "subscribe"; if
  necessary, enter your email address and click "Change"; click the page
  or wiki subscribe button to toggle your subscription status (green means
  you are subscribed).

  - To send comments, just reply, or send mail to the wiki's mail address.
  Your comment will appear on the original comment's page, or on the page
  whose WikiName appears in your mail's subject, or on the site's
  default mail-in page. 

<a name="editing"> Editing

  You have full editing rights to any page, unless restricted by the site
  admin or page owner.
  SandBox is the place to play with wiki page editing. You could open it
  in another window to test the things you read here.

  - Add a comment using the form at the bottom of the page

  - Click "edit" to change the page's text; it will be formatted and
  linked according to the ZWiki:TextFormattingRules.  
  You may also be able to upload a file or choose other options here.
  - Create new pages by adding their WikiName to an existing page
  and then clicking on the question mark beside it.

  - After you have configured a user name, in full mode you may also be
  able to reparent, rename and delete pages. Use the "manage this page"
  form at bottom or click the page title.

  Formatting rules in a nutshell:

   (It's possible for the site admin or a page editor to set different
   rules; these are the default currently used on most zwiki sites.)

   0. WikiName's, [freeform page names in brackets], http://URLs ,
   "structured text-style links":someurl and ZWiki:RemoteWikiLinks are
   made into hyperlinks

   0. text beginning and ending with &#42;, &#42;&#42;, _ or ' is
   *italic*, **bold**, _underlined_ or 'monospaced' respectively

   0. one or more non-blank lines are run together form a paragraph; blank
   lines separate paragraphs

   0. a one-line "paragraph" followed by a more-indented paragraph makes a

   0. a paragraph beginning with - or * or 0. and a space makes a bullet
     or numbered list item; a more-indented list item starts a sub-list

   0. HTML tags may be used if necessary;
      on sites which permit it,
      DTML tags (server-side code) may also be used 

   0. Some or all of the above rules may be escaped,
     by putting ! at the beginning of a link or a line !LikeThis;
     by enclosing text in single quotes 'LikeThis' ;
     or by indenting text after a paragraph ending with a double colon ::

      escapes <HTML tags> and &dtml-too;
