There is one command in the source that I don't understand:
<!--T:8-->
Is this syntax explained anywhere? I've searched the wiki and the forums, and I can't see it explained.

I have now found that this is translation infrastructure that is automatically added. I should not modify these when I am updating the page. For more information, see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Ext ... on_example
I had the same problem, but I was not aware other have it as well. I think that information should go to the wiki. The best place I figured was the
WikiPages:Before Starting


I added a section on what I understood. Please review the text (https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/WikiPag ... e_Starting) and tell me what is wrong, so I can correct it.

I find the page title unfortunate, because "WikiPages" does not tell what the page is about, it too general. Better would be "Editing Guidlines" or ""Wiki Editing". However, since the page is hard to find anyway I would suggest to put a link with that name to that page into the sidebar just below "Tutorials". I believe one needs admin rights to do that.
