The "_" is the translation function for wikis in other languages. In
the i18n - directory you find different mappings of English strings to
a certain language. So if a strings goes through the _-function, it
will be translated, if the user has another language chosen and if
there is a mapping in the i18n file.

Hope this is right (I'm still learning about MoinMoin, too)

best regards, Daniela
