There is no hard and fast style guide for articles on Teflpedia but some consistency is desirable.
- The article title should be the commonest way of defining the content. Alternate titles should be created as Redirects.
- With certain exceptions titles should have only the first letter capitalised.
- Exceptions are "proper names" of places or people; book or film titles etc.
The title should be referenced in the first sentence, which should be a full sentence, and be in bold:
- The first line of e.g. article "Punctuation" should be (and is):
- "Punctuation refers to the marks, …"
- and not:
- "refers to the marks, …" i.e. using the title as part of the first sentence.
Headers and sections
- Sections within an article are marked using headers created using one to six "=" before and after the header text.
- Headers up to (down to?) six can be used, but it is not common to go beyond three..
- Level one headers (using a single "=" before and after) are deprecated as they are the same size as the page title
- The first section should give an outline of the content. It should not have a header.
- Never "jump" a level. a level three header should always follow, or be within, a level two section; likewise a level four should be within a level three section etc.
