Personal Spaces made easy
"No tag too small"
Welcome to the Personal Space workshop, a place for people who find Guide-ML confusing or difficult, but would still like all the fancy tags it offers. The Personal Space Workshop aims to make Guide-ML simple and user friendly. If you get stuck, then you can opt to have the tags added for you.
Please note that the Workshop is directed towards Personal Spaces and Guide pages that are not intended to be submitted for review. This is because a lot of the Guide-ML given here is non-approved, meaning entries using it will not pass through the review forums without editing it out first. See the Writing-Guidelines if you intend to write an entry for the Guide and are unsure about what is required. Also, a list of approved Guide ML is available at Using Aprroved Guide ML for the Edited Guide.
On this page, the very basics are explained, such as how to edit your space. If you want any tags added for you, then say so here. The rest of the Workshop is found under the following headings...

To write in Guide ML, tick the 'Guide ML' box at the bottom, and then click 'change style'. What you then see looks something like
You should write your Space in the space between the tags.<GUIDE>
