I think I found that what *doesn't* work when you do something like
DanOBrien or PaulWFrields, is that simply putting that user name in a
page doesn't result in an automatic link to your personal wiki page.
Instead, you have to use this format:


...anytime you want to put your name in.  It's a bit of a pain,
really... and I suppose there could some day be an automatic script that
might miss one's account if named wrong.  So in short, make your life
easier! :-)
