     1 ---++ Help on Preferences
       
     2    * A preference setting is defined by: <br /> =3 or 6 spaces * Set NAME = value= <br /> Example:
       
     3       * S<nop>et WEBBGCOLOR = #FFFFC0
       
     4    * A preferences setting can be disabled with a # sign. Remove the # sign to enable a local customisation. Example:%BR%
       
     5       * #Set DENYWEBCHANGE = %USERSWEB%.UnknownUser
       
     6    * Preferences are used as %SYSTEMWEB%.TWikiVariables by enclosing the name in percent signs. Example:
       
     7       * When you write variable =%WEB<nop>BGCOLOR%= , it gets expanded to =%WEBBGCOLOR%=
       
     8    * The sequential order of the preference settings is significant. Define preferences that use other preferences first, i.e. set =<nop>WEBCOPYRIGHT= before =<nop>WIKIWEBMASTER= since =%<nop>WEBCOPYRIGHT%= uses the =%<nop>WIKIWEBMASTER%= variable.
       
     9    * You can introduce your own preferences variables and use them in your topics and templates.
