Wikipedia:Manual of Style

This Manual of Style (MoS or MOS) is the style manual for all English Wikipedia articles (though provisions related to accessibility apply across the entire project, not just to articles). This primary page is supported by further detail pages, which are cross-referenced here and listed at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Contents. If any contradiction arises, this page has precedence.[1]

Editors should write using straightforward, easily understood language and structure articles with consistent, reader-friendly layouts and formatting.

Where more than one style or format is acceptable under MoS, one should be used consistently within an article and should not be changed without good reason. Edit warring over stylistic choices is unacceptable.[2]

New content added to this page should directly address a persistently recurring style issue.
