Main body text



Normal text. But to continue this on
next line, use line break. Without formatting, the text will just wrap to the current width of the current browser window.

If you want to represent a formatting code directly, use 6 single quotes and the codes will print.
{{{ }}}

Verbatim text

Type all characters, codes and formatting freely in mono font in a Verbatim box ~% '''space''' ''mono''
# item *Header [ Wisdom]

Call out

 A space at the beginning of the line will 
call out the text and use a mono font. Normal text formatting also works in a call out box. But... - bullet -- another bullet ---- # item ## another item :item:description ||Table||Item|| * Header boxes, lists, tables and lines do not work in a call out box.

 (define (square y) 
   (* y y)) 
 (define (average x y) 
   (/ (+ x y) 2)) 
 (define (improve y x) 
   (average y (/ x y))) 
 (define (test? y x) 
   (< (abs (- (square y) x)) 0.0001)) 
 (define (iterate y x) 
   (if (test? y x) 
       (iterate (improve y x) x))) 
 (define (root x) 
   (iterate 1.0 x))
