Filtered HTML

  • Source Filter: Sources can be located in the 1st column (td) of a table with id sources. Source references should be enclosed in the @ character. Please note: source and source references strings are case sensetive and must match exactly.
  • You can insert footnotes directly into texts with [fn]This text becomes a footnote.[/fn]. This will be replaced with a running number (the footnote reference) and the text within the [fn] tags will be moved to the bottom of the page (the footnote). See <a href="http://drupal.org/project/footnotes">Footnotes Readme page</a> for additional usage options.
  • Every instance of "[toc ...]" in the input text will be replaced with a collapsible mediawiki-style table of contents. Accepts options for title, list style, minimum heading level, and maximum heading level, and attachments as follows: [toc list: ol; title: Table of Contents; minlevel: 2; maxlevel: 3; attachments: yes;]. All arguments are optional.
  • Allowed HTML tags: <fn> <a> <em> <strong> <blockquote> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <br> <p> <div> <table> <tr> <td> <ht> <tbody> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <fn>

    This site allows HTML content. While learning all of HTML may feel intimidating, learning how to use a very small number of the most basic HTML "tags" is very easy. This table provides examples for each tag that is enabled on this site.

    For more information see W3C's HTML Specifications or use your favorite search engine to find other sites that explain HTML.

    Most unusual characters can be directly entered without any problems.

    If you do encounter problems, try using HTML character entities. A common example looks like &amp; for an ampersand & character. For a full list of entities see HTML's entities page. Some of the available characters include:

    • Converts multiple hyphens to en dashes and em dashes (according to your preferences), using SmartyPants.
