  • Never use the '&' (ampersand) in a page name - it will never be found again!
  • Abbreviate 'Company' to 'Co' in page names
  • Do not use 'Ltd' / 'plc' and similar in page titles as companies change their legal status during their life-time

Page content

  • Body text should be short paragraphs (unbulleted) and commence with a year or date whenever possible.
  • Paragraphs are listed in date order ascending, so list by earliest reference first.
  • Try and give the reference to each paragraph of information using the <ref> button in the edit bar above.
  • Hyperlinks can also be added using the button on the function bar above.
