Stylistic Suggestions


I've been seeing a lot of html markup in the FS wiki and I think it's a good idea that people use wiki markup instead as it's easier to maintain and read.

In particular, html tables are a lot nastier than their wiki equivalents. I recoded part of using wiki tables and other wiki syntax (like using ''' instead of strong or b tags).

I recommend people read and use the wiki syntax shown there. is also helpful.

BTW: Can regular editors make general CSS changes to the pages? I think the following CSS code from Wikipedia would be useful for making tables look better (some color changes are obviously needed to fit FS Wiki):

--- Code: ---table.wikitable,
table.prettytable {
  margin: 1em 1em 1em 0;
  background: #f9f9f9;
  border: 1px #aaaaaa solid;
  border-collapse: collapse;

table.wikitable th, table.wikitable td,
table.prettytable th, table.prettytable td {
  border: 1px #aaaaaa solid;
  padding: 0.2em;

table.wikitable th,
table.prettytable th {
  background: #f2f2f2;
  text-align: center;

table.wikitable caption,
table.prettytable caption {
  margin-left: inherit;
  margin-right: inherit;

--- End code ---
