Thanks for explaining Chris.

As displayed by PET in LinuxAos for example.

Therefore will leave modules in the wikibook as plain Text, except for 
coloring to mark revisions as in some modules in EO.  Will stick to 
this until convinced otherwise at least.

Incidentally, MediaWiki.Markup converts color, boldness and 
italicization of Text into markup which Wikimedia converts to HTML 
which a browser renders to appear identical or similar to the original 
Text in Oberon.  To be more complete I should add font size.
