formatting & other code bits
  • manual zebra-striping on tables: |- class="alt"
  • set vertical alignment for all text in a table to top: class="vertical-align-row"
  • denote where to wrap a word if it's too long: zero-width space (​), soft hyphen (­)
  • regular space:  
  • alt text with dotted underline: <abbr title="alt text"></abbr>
other stuff
  • for quests that internally show a lower required level than would be possible to actually acquire the quest, put the level you can acquire it at.
  • all pages starting with...: Special:PrefixIndex
  • hash and ID for icons can be found at
  • cargo tables are found at Special:CargoTables
  • javascript modules like the one that defines race icons are found at Module:Tablename
  • hide self for screenshots: /console showplayer
  • for pages that show an XML error on the wayback machine, add "id_" at the end of the url's date section. e.g. ->
