  • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
  • Allowed HTML tags: <a> <em> <strong> <cite> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <b> <i> <pre> <hr> <p> <!>

    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.

    By default paragraph tags are automatically added, so use this tag to add additional ones.<p>Paragraph one.</p> <p>Paragraph two.</p>

    Paragraph one.

    Paragraph two.

    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:

  • Lines and paragraphs are automatically recognized. The <br /> line break, <p> paragraph and </p> close paragraph tags are inserted automatically. If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.
  • You can cite references directly into texts with <bib>citekey</bib>. This will be replaced with a running number (the publication reference) and the publication referenced by the citekey within the <bib> tags will be print to the bottom of the page (the reference).
  • Acidfree inline tags
  • It is possible to change the way the [acidfree:nnn] tags look by adding a few name/value pairs. Note that any value that has spaces in it must be quoted either with single quotes ' or with double quotes ". Currently, the choices are:
    • title: use this string as the caption (Note that you can have the node title be the default caption by modifying the setting in admin/settings/acidfree)
    • align: {left,right}
    • size: {M, WxH} where M=max dimension and WxH=WidthxHeight
    • link: 'none', 'album', or relative or absolute url e.g. http://www.google.com or node/59. If set to none, thumbnail will not be a link. If set to album, link will point to album of selected item.
    • popup: any value. If set, it will cause the link to be a popup link
    • style: CSS style information for the image
    • class: additional class for the image
    Examples
    • [acidfree:1234 size=300 align=right] - right aligned thumbnail of node 1234 with max dimension of 300 pixels
    • [acidfree:4321] - left aligned thumbnail of node 4321 (default thumbnail size)
    • [acidfree:3241 align=left size=320x240] - right aligned thumbnail of node 3241 with size = 320x240
    • [acidfree:3241 title='This is a different title' size=320 popup=true link="http://mysite.dom/"] - left aligned thumbnail of node 3241 with a title set, size = 320x240, link pointing to mysite.dom and target=blank_ set in the anchor
    • [acidfree:3241 link=none class='my-image your-image' style="border: 2 px grey inset;"] - left aligned thumbnail of 3241, default size, class set and new style info
