Russell and I could use some help with the following problems and I thought that 
these issues my be useful to a wider audience.

This page:
http://www.scipy.org/wikis/topical_software/DirectoryOfSciPyTopicalPages
does not exist but a search turned up the AstroPy page.

I have corrected the mailing list info and made a few minor edits,
but there are several I'd like to see resolved before making this the
official AstroPy page:

* Cosmetic glitches:

- Many words have question marks after them. Based on my limited wiki
experience and some testing, it seems that the wiki *THINKS* these
words *SHOULD* be links to other pages, and is "helpfully" generating
"you could add a page here" links. How do I stop this? (Sigh. I
thought only Microsoft went in for this level of fake pseudo-helpful
intelligence.)

- All my html links have too much space before them. How can I fix this?

* Documentation (which would probably allow me to fix the first two):

The SciPy wiki site seems to be missing documentation on the format
used for SciPy wiki pages. Thus not only am I flying blind, but
anyone else who edits this page will also be doing so. That gives me
the heebie-jeebies.
