Have added to HowTo a description for how to label equations

In the course of this I restructured the section “How to make links to subsections of a page” by giving it a few descriptively-titled subsections.

I was reminded of some things that I had wanted to add to the HowTo page, and now I finally got around to doing so:

I added a new section How to organize and write content with new subsections:

• CommentRowNumber4.
• CommentAuthorUrs
• CommentTimeSep 15th 2012

I have also added a subsection:

• CommentRowNumber5.
• CommentAuthorUrs
• CommentTimeSep 15th 2012

Oh, and now I have spotted and removed the subsection “How to ask questions”. I think we all agree that this initial idea we once had didn’t work out and should be abandoned, reproduced below just for the record:

## How to leave comments and questions

If you want to make a comment or question about a page without changing its main content, then edit the page and put your comment or question in a query block as shown in this example:

+-- {: .query}
How do I ask a question?
=--


which produces

+– {: .query} How do I ask a question? =–

Note that a query block should be less permanent than the rest of the page; once your comment is addressed or your question is answered, you can probably remove your query block.

If you want to ask a question of a specific person, then you can place a query block on their user page (which is just a page whose title is their name). You should be able to find all user pages here.

If your comment or question is more general than a specific page or person, then try the n-Forum. Previous discussions have been on the General Discussion page and on an entry at the n-Cafe. These previous discussions should not be added to but you may find your question answered there. Important answers are being migrated to this How To and the FAQ. As this is a Wiki, if you find an answer to your question and feel it should be added to one of those then do so.

That text shouldn't be removed entirely; it's still a formatting feature that's sometimes useful and should be documented.

The section has been edited bit by bit over the years as we've pulled away from heavy use of query boxes. It ought to start by pointing people to the Forum (instead of ending with this as it last did) and then show how to make a query box if people want to.

I will try to write a section like that now. … Done.
