We will be using TiddlyWiki for delivering the lab content in COMP210.  TiddlyWiki is a self-contained Wiki that is deployed as a single HTML file.  The file that you are looking at now is the entire Wiki --- there is no Wiki server beyond the web server that this file is hosted on.

The following is a quick rundown on how to use TiddlyWiki:

* When you have completed a section you can close it with the @@.ou-button-image {{$:/core/images/close-button}}@@ button at the top right of each section.

* You can save the current state of your progress by clicking the @@.ou-button-image {{$:/core/images/permaview-button}}@@ icon on the side bar to the right.  This will change the URL to include the state which you can then bookmark.  If you open the bookmark the page will reappear in the exact state that you left it in.

* You can reset back to the original state using the @@.ou-button-image  {{$:/core/images/home-button}}@@ icon on the side bar on the right.  This will close all open sections, so you will lose your progress.

* You can reopen a closed section by clicking its link in the 'Contents' section for that lab, or use the 'Contents' pane in the side bar.

* There is a search box in the side bar on the right that can search the entire document.

* If you want a printed copy of this document, first reset the document back to its default state by clicking the @@.ou-button-image {{$:/core/images/home-button}}@@ home button and then the <<menu "Open All">> button to open all of the sections, then click the @@.ou-button-image {{$:/core/images/print-button}}@@ button on the side bar on the right to print the document in is current state.

* You can show and hide the side bar using the @@.ou-button-image {{$:/core/images/chevron-right}}@@ button at the top right of the document.

* You can download a copy of this document using the @@.ou-button-image {{$:/core/images/save-button}}@@ icon on the side bar on the right.  Note that this is the only proper way to save the document.  Using the browser's 'save page' feature will likely result in a corrupted document.
