Word to Wiki Converter Example

From Bogleheads
Jump to: navigation, search

This is the example file created by the Word to wiki converter Word2MediaWikiPlus (updated) macro.

Text Formatting

This is colored text.

This is bold, italic, underlined, strike through and combined.

Footnotes work[note 1] (needs cite extension).

Courier New gets converted to <code>


Center aligned text.
Right aligned text.

If you check the box "convert font size" (under Text Conversion), then you get

Text in big letters. Text in small letters.

But only smaller than normal and bigger than normal, not actual size.

The macro recognizes manual line breaks
and puts a <br> into it.

But it will not

recognize single line breaks, as the Wiki-style will insert a blank line in-between.

Manual indentation with spaces will be ignored, use the tab key or make a list.

About the Redesigned $5 Bill

The redesigned $5 bills, which entered circulation on March 13, 2008, are safer, smarter and more secure: safer because they're harder to fake and easier to check; smarter to stay ahead of savvy counterfeiters; and more secure to protect the integrity of U.S. currency. Because security features are difficult for counterfeiters to reproduce well, they often do not try, hoping that cash handlers and the public will not check their money.[note 2]

The converter will output wiki syntax that looks like this: [[Image:Article_Name_01_624.png|thumb|none|553px]] When you preview this page, the link will be red. This is the same name as the file that was saved by the macro. Upload this same file into the wiki. When done, the image should appear as shown below.

Article Name 01 624.png

The new $5 design retains two of the most important security features that were first introduced in the 1990s and are easy for consumers and merchants alike to check: watermark and security thread.
