Use H2 for main section headings, H3 for sub-sections, H4 if you need a lower level. H2 are in "Title Case" -- all words capitalized, short words (the, a, in, up, over, about) should not be. H3 and H4 are in "Sentence case" -- only the first word is capitalized.

Figures & Tables

Figures and tables are centered, placed inside a P or DIV with class of "caption". For example:

<p class = "caption">
<img src = "....">
<strong>Caption for Figure</strong>

<div class = "caption">

Captions for figures appear beneath the figure, centered, with "Figure X:" in bold, the descriptive text in sentence case, plain text.

Captions for tables and code appear above the table, centered, with "Table X:" in bold, the descriptive text in sentence case, plain text.


Code samples entered as preformatted text, as in the following example, are automagically color highlighted in Wordpress by the SyntaxHighlighter plugin:

[sourcecode language='php']
RAW HTML/PHP/XML/Etc. code goes here; change language (in above line) as needed

Supported formats include cpp, c, c++, c#, c-sharp, csharp, css, delphi, java, js, jscript, javascript, pascal, php, py, python, rb, ruby, rails, ror, sql, vb,, xml, html, xhtml, and xslt. Pretty much everything except perl.

End of Document

Footnotes & Footnote References

A Notes section (if needed) immediately follows the last of the article's narrative text. Notes are indicated in the text either by note number in square brackets [1] or by author and year [Smith, 2007]. Where notes refer to articles, books, etc., that are not available by direct link, insert a COINS element after the note.

About the Author

A sentence or two of brief biography, provided by the author(s), appears listed after the Notes.


If there are appendices, they appear after the author biography.
