Look at this page's Wiki source to learn by example. To do so, click the "More" link at the bottom, and then click the "View Source" link on the resulting page. You will find that the syntax is almost self-explanatory, once you see it. Tip: Open two browser windows, one with the source, one with the "renders" view, and compare them side-by-side.
