Escaping symbols

Escaping is a way to disable wiki markup in a certain text fragment. For instance, if you want to write !!Hi!! without getting as a result, use escape characters and type ""!!Hi!!"".

There are two ways to escape a text:

  • Use double quotes two times. The text inside the quotes will be escaped:

    **This text is bold**
    ""**And this one is not**""
  • Add ~ before the text you want to escape. The text will be escaped up to the first space:

    **This_text_is_bold**
    ~**And_this_one_is_not**
