[[folder:Right To Left Text]]
Some languages and scripts like Arabic or Hebrew require the opposite of the usual left to right text flow.

For example [=[[rtl:Text goes here.]]=] would end up as this:

to:

[[folder:Right To Left [[folder:Aligned Text]]
Some To center text, use [=[[center:Text goes here]]=]:

[[center:Text goes here]]

** Note: the two pairs of at-signs have to be on the same line of markup text, and they cause line breaks.

** Note: the two pairs of at-signs have to be on the same line of markup text, and they cause line breaks. This can be worked around with the "double backslash and line break" method shown above.

Note that ''some'' markups--if left complete within the escape sequence--''are'' interpreted. The redirect markup is one. For these, you will need to escape in parts, like just the brackets.

If you need to continue a bullet point after a quote, you can use double colons (see above -- three colons for second-level bullet points and four for third-level) to match the indentation level.

@@[=* First point.=]@@
@@[=--> "Obligatory quote."=]@@
@@[=:: : I, too, am indented.=]@@

which produces:

* First point.
--> "Obligatory quote."
:: : I, too, am indented.

* Use \\ (two backslashes) at the end of a line to force a line break while keeping the same level of indentation, or [ softreturn ] (without the spaces inside the brackets) in the middle of a line for the same effect.\\
This is an example. Note: softreturn cannot be escaped. It generates a line break anyway. It can be commented out, though. In the unlikely event that you should need to write "[ softreturn ]" (again, without spaces) somewhere, write "[=[softreturn]=]", which renders as "[softreturn]", instead.

You can also use [=[[labelnote]]=] to change the label of your link. You can use anything you want as the thing to click so long as it doesn't contain a WikiWord or other markup, although an asterisk (star, splat, *) is common:




The [=[[labelnote]]=] tag obsoletes the previous [=[[hottip]]=] tag, which used a less robust syntax that gave the parser fits when someone tried to include a pothole in a hottip. ([=[[hottip:somelabel:long description]]=] was roughly equivalent to [=[[labelnote:somelabel]]long description[[/labelnote]]=].) A cleanup effort is ongoing to [[Sandbox/HottipCleanupSeptember2013Update convert old hottips]]. '''Unfortunately, the [=JavaScript=] that makes [=[[note]]=] and [=[[labelnote]]=] work does ''not'' work in preview''', so use the WikiSandbox for testing the markup if you're doing something inventive.
