Leaving editing notes
Leaving notes on a page that has been edited will help others who edit the page after you understand what was meant or what information you were lacking. Leaving a note or comment is fairly easy, it should look like this <!-- place note here --> when leaving a note leave your user name and the date you edited that part of the page <!-- place note here DrewT, 6.1.06 -->.
General formating can be done by using the tool bar above the editing box, but more advanced features take special characters. To find out more, read Wikipedia's "How to edit a page".
Setting up tables is more dificult in a wiki environment, we suggest that you read Wikipedia's Help:Table for that information.
