Linking to Wikipedia's a great thing if you think someone might want more information on a topic that doesn't pertain to Oberlin in any way (like [[Wikipedia:Public domain|the public domain]]!). To create a link to an article on Wikipedia, this is what you type:
[[http://WTHP3.coolhost.biz | WTHPD3]]
+
  <nowiki>[[Wikipedia:Page Title Here|Text to be displayed]]</nowiki>
[http://WTHP4.coolhost.biz | WTHPD4]
