<insert table header> <insert tables rows>

      • New style editing (extracted from Dallan's Watercooler posts)

Formatting Source text box: if you want to keep your spacing and line breaks you should surround your text with <code> and </code> tags. For example: <code> John Doe 10 July 1800 Jane Johnson 15 December 1801 </code>

Sources and notes now appear together along with footnotes in a "References" section. You can use the <references/> tag to list this section anywhere you want. You can use a <ref> tag to refer to sources in your narrative. For example <ref name="S1"/> will generate a superscript reference to source S1.

Images that are referenced in source citations or facts/events appear as small icons in the references section. Other images appear in an "Image gallery" section. You can use a <images/> tag to list this section where ever you want.
