From Wikipedia:

1.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leksand_Municipality

Leksand Municipality (Leksands kommun) is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Leksand.

In 1974 "old" Leksand was amalgamated with Ål and reunited with Siljansnäs (which had been separated from it in 1875).

(Did a straight copy and paste from the Web page itself. Notice that the links did not transfer over, nor did the bolding and italics.)

In 1974 "old" Leksand was amalgamated with Ål and reunited with Siljansnäs (which had been separated from it in 1875).

(Clicked the Wikipedia Edit* tab, scrolled to the desired text, and then copied and pasted all characters in that section. Notice that the italics, bolding, and links came through. However, most of the links are red, since they are internal links for Wikipedia, not the Research Wiki. The Sweden link is the exception, as the internal or "shortcut" link within Wikipedia was similar enough to that of the Research Wiki that it was redirected to the correct page in our Wiki. [*Note - there was no need to register with Wikipedia, as Wikitext was only copied. No true editing of their site took place.] )

3.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leksand_Municipality

Leksand Municipality (Leksands kommun) is a municipality in Dalarna County in central Sweden. Its seat is located in the town of Leksand.

In 1974 "old" Leksand was amalgamated with Ål and reunited with Siljansnäs (which had been separated from it in 1875).

(Clicked the Wikipedia Edit tab, scrolled to the desired text, and then copied and pasted all characters in that section. Clicked each Wikipedia link separately, copying their URL's and editing the Research Wiki's links. Notice that the italics and bolding came through.  The external links are now the same as those of the original source.)

From another Internet page:

Practice Training for "Signing your name"

After adding a message or note to a discussion (not adding Wiki content), please sign your name.  Of course, you will also save the page after doing so.

  1. Just your name: add three tildes (~) in a row, with no spaces.  SuperGenealogist
  2. Your name, plus the date and time: add four tildes (~) in a row, with no spaces.  SuperGenealogist 21:10, 16 December 2010 (UTC)
  3. Your name, plus the date and time, but showing your display name rather than your user name: 

         a. Add four tildes (~) in a row, with no spaces.  SuperGenealogist 16:01, 6 January 2011 (UTC).

         b. Click edit for that section, and then click Wikitext.

         c. Locate your signature, which will be in the format of Left bracket Left bracketUser:User              name|User name]].

         d. Change the second instance (which follows the pipe) of your user name to your display              name.  The format will then be: [[User:User name|Display nameRight bracket Right Bracket.               Genealogist 16:23, 6 January 2011 (UTC).  Anyone who clicks on that link will still be                    directed to the correct user page.
