"Introduction to Markup" works for me (I changed the (:title:)
but there is no PmWiki rename action as yet, other than *cough*
a cookbook recipe).

I worry that the EditGettingStarted page is still too long, and 
as people improve it, they will make it longer.

FWIW, the reason I omitted headings from the Introduction
is nicely illustrated on the list over the last few days -- 
The documentation needs a discussion of why one often chooses 
not to use !Heading 1, which doesn't belong in an introduction. 
But people keep adding a heading example, so I give up. I would
be happier with a heading reference in the introduction if PmWiki

either sets ! heading  --> <h2> (Bronwyn's local perference)

or has ! heading disabled (Ben's local preference). 

A $EnableH1 option could allow people to use <h1> if desired.

Just my 10¢...
