Make in-game manual conform to style guide

completed by: smu33rules

mentors: Steven Panek

Ever after making most of the game conform to our style guide, most of the in-game manual has been non-conformant, thus we need you to make it conform.


  • The ability to find out what needs to be fixed and how to properly fix whatever needs to be fixed
  • Knowledge formatting parts of HelpWML or the ability to learn the formatting parts of HelpWML

HelpWML reference:

(Note that the actual formatting tags use angular brackets (<>) instead of square brackets ([]); just look at how things are being used in the actual file)

Syle guide:

help.cfg (trunk):*checkout*/wesnoth/trunk/data/core/help.cfg


You have been given ninety hours to complete this task.


We expect that your work will make the in-game manual fully conform to our style guide. We expect that you work off of trunk (just look at the third link provided).


For a student with the necessary skills, it should be easy; moderate at the most.


We expect you to deliver the file either in the form of a patch or the fixed file itself.
