To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. If you are familiar with Wikipedia, take a look over some of the differences here.
While HTML5 doesn't require XML-compliant tags, it doesn't hurt to maintain XML-compliance so I've restored the <br /> tags to the Main Page. The page still has some validation errors, although it looks like some of these may be in Mediawiki code. -- Ryan • (talk) • 15:25, 2 May 2014 (UTC)
