The online wiki editor is essentially the same as the one that you use to create a new message.
But a feature of a wiki is the ability to easily undo edits.
To revert an edit:
- Go to the wiki page in question.
- Click on "xxx revisions" at the upper right (where xxx is the number of revisions made.)
- Click on the middle column (reason for edit.)
- Scroll to the bottom of that page and select select Delete This Revision.
- Confirm that you want to delete it.
