-You don't need to use tabs anymore in PhpWiki. Consider this page obsolete. See TextFormattingRules for how to use PhpWiki markup.
-VariousBrowsers have trouble with the tab character used in the TextFormattingRules. If you can't type a tab, or, if you are fixing up a page written by someone who didn't type tabs, then you should have us convert spans of spaces to tabs for you. You request space to tab conversion with the checkbox that appears near the bottom of EditText and EditCopy pages. It looks something like this...
- [[o] I can't type tabs. Please ConvertSpacesToTabs for me when I save.
-A span of spaces must be at least __three__ spaces long to be recognized
-as a tab. Use multiples of __eight__ spaces to make multiple tabs.
-Each span of eight spaces will convert to one tab. If the
-last span comes up a little short, that's ok, as long as
-there are at least three spaces in the last (only) span.
-__Check your work.__ This sort of heuristic can lead to unexpected results.
-[Maintenance note: This page is seen when the user clicks on the
-"ConvertSpacesToTabs" link on any edit screen. It describes what happens
-when you ask the system to do this, why you would want it to, and ways to
-avoid the spaces-instead-of-tabs problem.]
+You have a nice sense about the books you like; I'm happy to see we have a few in common. You might want to check out The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith it's less a devtecite story than a series of heartfelt character sketches as seen from the POV of the traditionally-built Precious Ramotswe. Get it if you find it growing up in Davao, I could never find the books I wanted, although that might not be a problem these days. (Remember, all I had growing up was Velasco bookstore and that effin' Alemars that used to be near Ateneo.)Another thing you might want to check out I always recommend to my bibliophile friends. It's amazing how clear your book preferences become when you've cataloged the whole kit. Don't worry, it's ridiculously easy to enter your books just enter the ISBN number, and the site will find the rest of the details for you. Here's what looks like. Have fun.
