Username and date signatures using tildes

To flag entries on talk pages (or anywhere it seems important), the standard is to flag with your username and date. The wiki software can fill that in automatically for you.

What Syntax Output
Your wiki username and date (this is the recommended style) four tildes: ~~~~ Fsmith 14:59, 21 May 2007 (PDT)
Your username only three tildes Fsmith
Date only five tildes 14:59, 21 May 2007 (PDT)

Formatting conventions for COLLADA articles

For these items Format Example
COLLADA elements no formatting, but enclose in angle brackets The <image> element...
New terms, emphasized text, attribute names inline in text, values for the user to fill in for syntax examples ''italics'' The name attribute of the <foo> element, also called the imaginary new term, must not, under any circumstances...

Type the following, replacing myname with your name:

foo name=myname
Code inline with other text <code>code</code> Use dae:getFoo to get the foo...
Items in user interfaces, such as menu names or labels on forms '''bold''' From the File menu, select Save as, then fill in your filename in the New name field.
