What You Think Is What You Get

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.

When writing, the writer uses plain text as opposed to the formatted text found in "What You See Is What You Get" word processors. The writer uses markup tagging conventions to define the general structure of a document to stylise text throughout a document (such as bold and italics), and to add citations and cross-references.


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.
