The references section has lost its formatting after a minor edit.  I am not sure how to change it back.  Appreciate the edit help.

When editing code in such a large document, it's easy to type something twice, or simply to leave out an important character sometimes. What happened was you added a line saying <nowiki><ref name="the title of your reference"><ref>[http://link.com]</ref>.
 
 
To make things a little easier, <ref name=""> is not where you put the title of the reference. That is in case you are using the same reference for two or more different paragraphs or sections. This is how to properly add a simple reference tag:
 
 
<ref>[http://www.reference.com Title Of Reference Here]</ref></nowiki>--[[User:Chance|Chance]] 10:38, 8 August 2008 (UTC)
 
 
 
 
Related to the Michigan Stem Cell issue on the November ballot:  Toward the bottom of the page there is a section called "EXTERNAL LINKS" providing links to webpages in both support of the initiative as well as in opposition to it.  Only the the link of support for the issue works.  THE LINK TO ACCESS THE WEBSITE OPPOSING THE INITIATIVE IS AS FOLLOWS:  [[www.stemcellresearchcures.com]]  It needs to be corrected by those editing BallotPedia.org.  Currently you have an error in the link because it reads http://www.http://stemcellresearchcures.com .
 
 
Thank you for fixing this.
 
 
Sincerely,
