  • Don't use under-scores (_) in internal links - i.e. [[Htmlpedia:Manual of Style]] rather than [[Htmlpedia:Manual_of_Style]]. It makes editing easier and more natural.
  • Use the pipe trick to create links easily. E.g. to create a link to this page Htmlpedia:Manual of Style, but just show Manual of Style, type [[Htmlpedia:Manual of style|]] (note this pipe character | before the closing ]]).
