You must not merge cells in tables. Merged table cells are not Section 508-compliant. You must enter meaningful information in each cell, as blank cells are not Section 508-compliant. Repeat data in each cell to which it applies. Indicate "none" or "not applicable" where appropriate.

Alt text must be included for every image posted on the wiki. In addition, describe the important aspects of the image in the text.

A link to a disclaimer must be included for every link posted to a site external to the U.S. Government. Refer to How to create links to external sites.

Wiki Use, Duplication of Content, Links to Wiki Pages

Using the Wiki

The goal of the wiki is to allow users to collaborate on developing documents and information. The architecture of the wiki is designed to make finding information easy, and is revised continually. Users are responsible for the accuracy of the information posted and for verification of information that they use. You can contribute content if you have an account (to request one, click the New Account link at the top of the page).

Important Notes

  • Do not copy the content of a wiki page to another wiki page. Include or link to the content.
  • Use the title of the page or the Tiny Link (not the URL displayed by the browser). The Tiny Link is a permanent link and you can access it by clicking the button with the three dots in the upper right of any wiki page in view mode, and then selecting Page Information. The Tiny Link will continue to work if the page title is changed. Links made using the page title change when the page title is changed.
