Wiki Style Guide


This style guide is intended to:
- Reduce presentational differences between articles.
- Reduce wiki categorization omissions and errors.
- Improve usability and accessibility for all wiki visitors.
- Also see WikiTemplates

Guidelines

Text and graphics are preferred for articles.
Many people either do not have access to broadband or can’t afford it. Video is of no use to people using Screen Readers.

If you wish you may state that you are the originator of the file.

Tables may only be used for tabular data

||Cell 1||Cell 2||


Vertically tall graphics should be placed on the right.
So text may flow up and left of them. Vertically short graphics may simply be placed normally and thus appear on the left. The code below is taken from Dpup article.
{{image class="right" url="http://dpup.org/images/beta4-3.jpg" title="Dpup screenshot" alt="Dpup screenshot"}}{{image url="http://www.dpup.org/images/logo.gif" title="Dpup.org logo" alt="Dpup.org logo"}}


H1 title may only be used once at top of article (any color but red).
======{{color text="Article Title Size H1" c="green"}}======


Use H2 size titles to designate article sections (any color but red).
====={{color text="Article Section Heading H2" c="green"}}=====


Use H3 through H4 size titles to designate article headings (black is preferred).
==={{color text="Article Heading" c="black"}}===


Use H5 size titles to designate article sub titles (black is preferred).
==Article Sub Heading==


Text color must be set for H4 through H1 size titles.
==={{color text="Text color must be set for H4 size titles and above" c="black"}}===


Red should only be used for warnings (and not in titles either).
Warning: Red should only be used for warnings.

Use bold to emphasize text within the article. Do not use bold to designate article titles.
**This text is bold for emphasis**


Use underline to call attention to text within the article (not in titles).
__significant__


Use a list to place bullets on special points within articles.
	- This is a bulleted point


Articles must include this footer.

Any CamelCase text that is not the name of an existing wiki page must be disabled with two sets of double quotes.

""ThisWikiPageDoesNotExist""


Avoid HTML in articles, not all editors are proficient with it.


Pictures and graphics must have title text and alt text. This enables people who use screen readers to better understand articles.

title="Logo and or graphic image description" alt="Logo and or graphic image description"
