A reminder to beat writers ...

The conversion to XML will be easier if the original wiki is marked appropriately:

Package names should be marked as packagename

File and directories should be marked as /dir/name

Commands should NOT be indented. e.g.:

yum check-update

gui menus and items should be marked About Me

Keystrokes [Key]

In general, you want to start discussion of a new package with a new subsection:

postgresql

None of these are cast in bronze, but following these guidelines will make the conversion to XML a lot easier.
