There are three options: No HTML, safe HTML or HTML only. 'No HTML' will display all HTML tags as tags. 'Safe HTML' will allow certain tags to be displayed. 'HTML only' enables the [[HTML editor]] to display in [[Common_acronyms#N_to_Z|WYSIWYG]].

===Wiki mode===
A new page can be created in the wiki by typing a word using CamelCase i.e. with a capital letter at the beginning and a capital letter somewhere else in the word. It's called CamelCase because the two capital letters resemble a two-humped camel. CamelCase combines all the words for the link into one word. Each word in the link is capitalized. When a word is added in CamelCase, the wiki automatically creates a new page and makes the word a link. You can disable this feature if you wish, so that typing a word enclosed in square brackets is the only way of creating a new page.

*Choose between "Individual wiki" where each student gets their own, or "Collaborative wiki" where students work together on a single wiki.
  
CamelCase is not always desirable, as some text is written in it. For example a file name might be MyFile_2007_Feb.jpg.
