The CIMI Glossary has been transferred into the wiki. We still need to get a a graphics rendering tool installed so we can look at in a fashion similar to the maps in the source document. The glossary pages are organized as a combination of "categories" and "individuals". Categories represent classes of things, such as Organisation, Standard or Specification, Object Management Group Specification, etc. Individuals represents instances of these categories, such as Object Management Group, Unified Modeling Language, Unified Modeling Language, etc.
Most categories and individuals have one or more reference definitions. These definitions are drawn from external sources and should not be changed. (TODO: revert changes that have already been made). A category of individual also has an official CIMI definition that may or may not match the reference definition. To suggest changes to the CIMI definition, use the "Definition" link on the page. As an example, if you wanted to suggest updates or changes to the definition of Organisation, you would click on the "Definition:" link, which would take you to a page named "Organisation_Definition". You could enter comments in the discussion section and/or make changes to the definition itself.
Don't worry about making changes. Mediawiki maintains a complete history of changes and anything that is done can be readily undone. In addition, Mediawiki detects simultaneous changes and provides a reasonable resolution mechanism.
This is there because the definitions are "transcluded" into the containing page (e.g. Organisation_Definition is included in the Organisation page, but we don't want to classify Organisation as a Definition - just the definition itself.
The three main categories of CIMI models are:
CIMI clinical models are defined by constraining the CIMI reference model. Each example instance of a CIMI Clinical Model is an instance of the CIMI reference model, which conforms to the constraints defined by the associated clinical model. The CIMI Clinical Patterns are a set of reusable models that define clinical semantics common to multiple clinical models. Each CIMI Clinical model specialises and/or extends at least one CIMI Clinical Pattern, to increase the design consistency between similar clinical models.
An early draft CIMI Modelling Styleguide can be found here.

You can format your text by using wiki markup. This consists of normal characters like asterisks, apostrophes or equal signs which have a special function in the wiki, sometimes depending on their position. For example, to format a word in italic, you include it in two pairs of apostrophes like
§Text formatting markup
|Description||You type||You get|
|Character (inline) formatting – applies anywhere|
|Bold and italic||
'''''bold & italic'''''
bold & italic
<strike> strike text </strike>
|Escape wiki markup||
|Escape wiki markup once||
[[Special:MyLanguage/API:Main page|API]]<nowiki/> extension
|Section formatting – only at the beginning of the line|
|Headings of different levels||
== Level 2 == === Level 3 === ==== Level 4 ==== ===== Level 5 ===== ====== Level 6 ======
Text before ---- Text after
* Start each line * with an [[Wikipedia:asterisk|asterisk]] (*). ** More asterisks give deeper *** and deeper levels. * Line breaks <br />don't break levels. *** But jumping levels creates empty space. Any other start ends the list.
Any other start ends the list.
# Start each line # with a [[Wikipedia:Number_sign|number sign]] (#). ## More number signs give deeper ### and deeper ### levels. # Line breaks <br />don't break levels. ### But jumping levels creates empty space. # Blank lines # end the list and start another. Any other start also ends the list.
Any other start also ends the list.

This workaround may harm accessibility.

The usage of
Start each line with a space. Text is '''preformatted''' and ''markups'' '''''can''''' be done.
This way of preformatting only applies to section formatting. Character formatting markups are still effective.
Start each line with a space. Text is preformatted and markups can be done.
|Preformatted text blocks||
<nowiki>Start with a space in the first column, (before the <nowiki>). Then your block format will be maintained. This is good for copying in code blocks: def function(): """documentation string""" if True: print True else: print False</nowiki>

MediaWiki ignores single line breaks. To start a new paragraph, leave an empty line. You can force a line break within a paragraph with the HTML tag
Some HTML tags are allowed in MediaWiki, for example
<font>. These apply anywhere you insert them.

Symbols and other special characters not available on your keyboard can be inserted through a special sequence of characters. Those sequences are called HTML entities. For example, the following sequence (entity) → when inserted will be shown as HTML symbol → and — when inserted will be shown as an HTML symbol —.
|HTML symbol entities|
|Description||You type||You get|
|Greek delta letter symbol||
|Euro currency symbol||
See the list of all HTML entities on the Wikipedia article List of HTML entities. Additionally, MediaWiki supports two non-standard entity reference sequences:
&رلم; which are both considered equivalent to
‏ which is a right-to-left mark. (Used when combining right to left languages with left to right languages in the same page.)
- &euro; → €
- <span style="color: red; text-decoration: line-through;">Typo to be corrected</span> → Typo to be corrected
- <span style="color: red; text-decoration: line-through;">Typo to be corrected</span> → <span style="color: red; text-decoration: line-through;">Typo to be corrected</span>
§Nowiki for HTML
<nowiki /> can prohibit (HTML) tags:
- <<nowiki />pre> → <pre>
But not & symbol escapes:
- &<nowiki />amp; → &
To print & symbol escapes as text, use "&" to replace the "&" character (eg. type "&nbsp;", which results in " ").
Beyond the text formatting markup shown hereinbefore, here are some other formatting references:

The style guide for CIMI models is still under construction. As soon we have decided on structure and content the guide will be published here.
