I made some changes. See thread, /[MacPorts] WikiFormatting modified/, 
on Fri, 25 Sep 2020 19:55:25 -0500 and beyond, for a list of the 
changes, and the issues presented by that. 

If we continue the discussion in that thread, then it's probably better 
not to continue this thread. Or vice versa.
