Subpage support is switched on for all namespaces apart from Image: and MediaWiki:.

4 Syntax highlighting
Spammers are creating accounts and adding hidden links. Thanks to those who are reverting the spam.
I'm looking at Captcha extensions for MediaWiki. I want to put a Captcha just on new account creation: hopefully that will be enough. —Ashley Y 23:15, 10 March 2006 (UTC)
- Is there a way to revert the spammers changes easily, other than modifying the page in the reverse way? A kind of revert command that really does just roll back the history. --Neil Mitchell 10:05, 11 March 2006 (UTC)
- The easiest way is to edit the previous version and save it, I think. —Ashley Y 07:50, 12 March 2006 (UTC)
- If you click on the 'diff' link in RecentChanges, there is a [revert] button (maybe only for administrators). -- kowey 13:23, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

6 Style Help
I think the style (which I copied from the original haskell.org pages) could use improvement. Is there anyone interested in doing this?

6.1 Numbered headings

7 Printable version and skins
Some of the skins support a "printable version" link on pages. Most do not (including the default one). Is it possible to turn "printable version" links on all skins without a huge amount of work and effort?
