Wiki markup is based on WYTIWYG principle, it says "you got to think how it would be, and then you can do that exactly".
What we look for is often what we find.
The mind is a strong determining factor in producing results.
Essentially, you don't get what you want but rather what you expect.
Special care has been taken so Wacko's formatted output actually looks like you expect it to look. There are no unwanted blank lines after bulleted lists or headers; indented lists can have multiple indention levels; all formatting tags are easy to remember because they follow the TwoCharacterRule. We even tried to make it so that the formatting symbols are not too difficult to type.
Rules are simple, rules are written in Wacko Formatting. Speaking shortly,
**this will make it bold**, and
//this -- italic//.
When editing Wacko pages, What You Think Is What You Get.
