This particular wiki is one that extends the traditional wiki concept in some innovative ways. This very page you're reading is an example of but one of those extensions: This wiki, as with all wikis using Wagn, organizes information into cards, and cards can be nested within other cards.

There's no special mark-up to learn in order to format cards. Most of the formatting options are in TinyMCE's toolbars, and a small subset of plain old ordinary XHTML can take care of the rest.

There are many more features than can be reasonably fitted here.
