Formatting Article Text

Wikipedia offers many different ways to format the text within an article. Most of these formatting effects are generated by surrounding the affected text with some sort of code. For example, to format text as italic, you enter two apostrophes (not a single quotation mark) before and after the text; to format text as bold, you enter three apostrophes before and after the text.

The most common options are described in the following table:
