Text editing: ''Italics'' and {{w|links}}

Now it's time to get started editing! You can navigate to your own sandbox page in another browser window to try it out for yourself.

The wiki code for italics text is like this:

''italics'' = italics

Creating a wikilink to a Wikinews topic or a Wikipedia article looks like this:

{{w|wikilink}} = wikilink for Wikipedia
{{w|Internet}} = Internet for Wikinews

That link to the Wikipedia article wikilink will redirect you to Hyperlink#Hyperlinks in wikis. To link to an article with a different name than the text, used a piped link, like this:

{{w|Hyperlink#Hyperlinks in wikis|wikilink}} = wikilink (with the link to Hyperlink#Hyperlinks in wikis)

The code will automatically first select Wikinews if a Wikinews page exists. Otherwise, it will link to English Wikipedia.
