Red font popping up amongst the black in the biography [closed]

Somehow, in the profile for van_de_Wijgaart-2, one word - Maria - is in red. In the edit mode, I cannot work out how this has happened. Can someone help me to make it black again.

I am also battling to understand which characters to use to format. Is there as list somewhere of how : and :: and * and | and perhaps others, that I still have not found, work.

Maria is in red because the link you tried to create leads somewhere that does not exist. You dropped a letter in the ID. Here is a list of wiki markup code:

Hope that helps.
