This Entry is where beginners of Guide ML or even non beginners to look at all the magical things you can do with it. This Guide is all where people who have made a mistake can come upon and check!
If you are just looking at ways to liven your page up, then you can add pictures, texts, font and do as much as you please.But if you are writing a guide then maybe you should be looking a bit elsewhere as some of these Guide ML formats won't work for a guide so you should actually be looking at " Using approved Guide ML in Edited Guide entrys ".
How to look at other people codes
All you have to do is start by opening the same window and arraging it so you can switch esily between both. In te adress bar of this pafe delete the A but leave the numbers and the rest unchanged. Apply the word TEST before the numbers so it should look like:
If you want to veiw someone Personal Space then you will have to delete the U and type TESTUSERPAGE in front of the numbers.
A new window should appear now. But if you compare the "code view" to the "normal view" you should be anle to see which bit are code and therfore invisable in the normal view of the page because they all appear between brackets <LIKE THESE> which are also known as "tags".
