Just to let you know: you are ending up with boxes around your subheadings because you are adding an extra space at the begining of every line. These boxes are meant to provide instructions about how to use MediaWiki, so commands will not work within them. You will not be able to create links, bold or italicize type, for instance, within them. Keep up the good work, otherwise!
