Using Textile Instead of HTML
Web pages are made with HTML (HyperText Markup Language), but HTML and the various web editing and design programs like Dreamweaver can be a challenge to learn and cumbersome to maintain. The CMS uses Textile, a simpler language with less possibility of errors.
The Textile toolbar (pictured above) is similar to a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) toolbar except that instead of inserting formatted text, it inserts the appropriate Textile codes.
If you have raw HTML that you would like to quickly convert to Textile, this conversion tool can be a helpful start. HTML tags can also be mixed into Textile, but this should be done sparingly and with great care.

There’s also a short Textile reference when you’re editing a page in the CMS. Just click the filter reference link beside where you choose Textile as your filter. If you need a more in-depth reference, see the RedCloth Textile Manual.
