[edit] Boxes

but do things wrap in these sorts of boxes?  It's cool to finally figure out how they work, really
cool....even creating new lines with >br< tags, but do they autowrap, or are <br>s necessary? Hmm.
Nope. You need a <br> to wrap. Too bad.
This is a new paragraph in the same box.
Starting a line with a space creates one of these boxes, as does a <pre> tag.
This lovely box is all inside of a <pre> tag.  That means 
just hitting return starts a new line.  Now how do you wrap, no auto-wrap, I'd bet, were I a 
betting man, but since I'm not, let's see...  Nope, no auto-wrap here, either.  Just inserted a 
return instead.

A new pgh.  Bye!
Some text

Template:dashedbox is the implementation of the above box. Use it thusly:

{{dashedbox|Bob was ''here'' and '''here'''!}}

Bob was here and here!

[edit] Testing Window Templates

For window and dialogue names in the Style Guide

In the Page Style dialogue, select Bar.

In the http://www.mindspring.com/~sardisson/neoj/left.pngPage Stylehttp://www.mindspring.com/~sardisson/neoj/right.png dialogue, select Bar.

Issues: I can't get a bg-image or bg-color and have this still be an inline element, because MediaWiki doesn't support span :-( (Wanted to use Lucida Grande, too....)

Hey, maybe MW1.5 does; this template has a span in it:

Check the box for This document only; this will make the language settings apply only to the current document.

Choose the Cancel button. Choose the Open this page button.

In the Complex Text Layout section, click Enable CTL.
