wikitext, also known as wiki markup or wikicode, consists of the syntax and keywords used by the mediawiki software to format a page. to learn how to see this hypertext markup, and to save an edit, see: help:editing. generally, coding can be copied and pasted, without writing new code. there is a short list of markup and tips at help:cheatsheet.
in addition to wikitext, some html elements are also allowed for presentation formatting. see help:html in wikitext for information on this.
