Using TAGS on pages created

Tags are just like categorizing pages into folders, the difference being you can have multiple tags to a page, and hence the page will appear in multiple categories. In order that the website easy for navigation, I ask everyone to follow a criteria in Tagging pages, make it standard, and easy in tag navigation. You may use few tags but do not use unnecessary tags. The tags should include,
1. The subject it falls under (eg: medicine, surgery etc)
2. The topic it falls under (eg: CVS, RS etc)
3. The name of the subtopic itself (eg: Rheumatic Heart disease)
Do not create unnecessary new tags, before you tag a page, please review the tag cloud (the tags already present on the site) pick and choose the tags that fit your page. Create new tag only when it is necessary.

How to convert Word Doc / HTML files to MediaWiki code:

We would like to remind you that, WikiEditing does not support HTML code.
So please do not edit using HTML codes.
It has its on MediaWiki code, the same that is used on Wikipedia.
You may have notes already written in HTML format or perhaps typed in Word Doc.
You can do one thing to put them here. There are ways, yet these are for simple pages.
Not pages with Images and a lot of complex tables.
Its all explained in detail on this following link:
