Title: Stylistic Suggestions
Post by: Kamikaze on November 18, 2005, 01:41:55 am
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 http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/FS1_Cheats using wiki tables and other wiki syntax (like using ''' instead of strong or b tags).

I recommend people read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:How_to_edit_a_page and use the wiki syntax shown there. http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Table 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: [Select]
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;
