/*Customizable interface*/
==WYSIWIG editing==
Like many wikis, MediaWiki has a semi-[[WYSIWIG]] (an acronym for '''W'''hat '''Y'''ou '''S'''ee '''I'''s '''W'''hat '''Y'''ou '''G'''et) language for the editing of the content on the sites it powers, allowing users who do no know [[HTML]] to relatively easily generate web content of high technological quality.
==Customizable interface==
MediaWiki allows a high degree of customizability to websites it powers, often by directly editing the PHP of the site, although users are often able to edit a personal [[JavaScript]] or [[CSS]] (Cascading Style Sheets) file to customize large portions of the interface to their own preferences. An example of a common interface element primarily changed through direct editing of the PHP is the site logo, defined by the $wgLogo variable.
