Wiki formatting is so old-fashioned and confusing
You can italicize text by putting 2 apostrophes on each side.
3 apostrophes will embolden the text.
5 apostrophes will embolden and italicize the text.
(Using 4 apostrophes doesn't do anything special --
the last pair are just 'left over ones' that are included as part of the text.)
- Please note the American spelling of "center".
The blockquote command formats block quotations, typically by surrounding them with whitespace and a slightly different font.
