Unlike most wiki engines, line breaks within a single paragraph are not ignored, but are displayed as separate lines in the same paragraph. (It is thus useful to turn on “word wrapping” when editing a Wiki document with a text editor.)

Also, leading spaces can be used for simple indentation; they do not cause any special formatting, nor are they ignored.

A new paragraph can be explicitly started on any line with a leading backslash (\) followed by a space. This can be used to avoid the blank line between paragraphs, or to add special attributes to the paragraph.
