I am a little confused, but that's easy to achive since I am very new
to PmWiki.

Some of the format variables seem to use Wiki markup and some seem to
use HTML markup. How do I know when I have to use HTML and when I have
to use Wiki markup? While the HTML approach allows more flexibility the
Wiki approach is nice because I can use Cookbook entries like the
PageTitle one.
