     3Trac has a built-in wiki engine, used for text and documentation throughout the system. WikiFormatting is used for [wiki:TitleIndex wiki pages], '''tickets''' and '''commit log messages'''.
     4
     5This allows for formatted text and hyperlinks in and between all Trac modules.

     7Editing wiki text is easy, using any web browser and a simple formatting system (see WikiFormatting), rather than more complex markups like HTML.
     8The reasoning behind its design is that HTML, with its large library of nested tags, is too complicated to allow fast-paced editing, and distracts from the actual content of the pages. Note though, Trac also supports [wiki:WikiHtml HTML] and [wiki:WikiRestructuredText reStructuredText] as alternative markup formats.
     9
     10The main goal of the wiki  is making editing text easier and '''encourage''' people to contribute and annotate text content for a project.

     12Wiki itself does not enforce any structure, but rather resembles a stack of empty paper sheets, where you can organize information and documentation as you see fit, and later reorganize if necessary.
