Avoid #13, "paste from Word". Read more to learn why.
You can do the following with the editor:
Most editing tasks can be done simply using only a handful of functions provided.

Links to other content can be included in article text directly or by using the insert link command on the Wiki editor. The quickest way to insert a link is to use Wiki text (for links within the Wiki) or the url (for links outside of the Wiki).
The Insert/edit link button is in the toolbar at the top of the editor:
To use the Insert/edit link button:
You can do this for any URL, including a TechNet Wiki link.
If you are linking to an external URL (not to another page on TechNet Wiki), please specify where you are sending people or see the section below,
Linking to External Content.
To link to a topic in the TechNet Wik:
To link to external content, simply drop the URL inline in the text. When rendered, it will be clickable.
You can create numbered, bulleted lists or a combination of numbered and bulleted lists using the editor.
To create a simple list:
Embedded lists contain a combination of bulleted and numbered lists.
To create a combination list:
You can repeat steps 3-5 to create lists of essentially unlimited depth. Why you would want to do so is another matter!
You can upload and embed illustrations and other relevant pictures in your Wiki article.
To embed a picture:
Check to make sure the image looks good and fits the context.
You can then right-click an image (while still in the Edit tab) to add a description, title, image swap option, to resize the image, format the text around the image, and even to link the image to another page!
To embed a link to a video from YouTube or other compatible site:
Make sure the material is appropriate!
