  • Require Space After Bullet Proposal
    means better emotional response of the users and perceived friendliness additional space provides for easy scanning of text making it more readable because of technological deficiencies of wikis users need to find the place they wanted to edit in the raw text spacing marks the structure of the document visually is simple the ambiguities with other markup are solved once and for all the rule is very simple to explain making Creole easier to teach the rule can be easily observed by the users making Creole easier to learn Creole is easier to design and maintain with less special cases is local the result of formatting depends only on the line s content itself not on the context in which the line appears the text can be easily moved around copied and pasted users don t need to scroll the text area to make sure what the formatting does the markup that worked before in one case will also work the same in other cases parsers can be tested and debugged more easily as there is less interaction of different rules is traditional it is a well established tradition coming from the era of typewriters to put a space after the bullet this tradition is carried over to text files on computers it is even older tradition in typography to put lead after to the right of punctuation characters like periods colons dashes or bullets the space appears there anyways when rendered using practically any text rendering mechanism popular in wikis be it HTML XHTML docbook LaTeX or texinfo is user friendly users make less mistakes with simple rules allows to use single asterisks for bold even when it is not parsed introducing additional markup is easier without a risk of introducing new conflicts and ambiguities users don t need to do additional formatting of other s text to make it readable and easy to edit removes unnatural restrictions from other markup emphasis can span lines list items can consist of multiple lines Also see EnginesUsingAsterisksForListsAndBold Visual comparsion Without the space 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 01234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789 Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet consectetuer adipiscing elit sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam quis nostrud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat Duis autem vel eum iriure dolor in hendrerit in vulputate velit esse molestie consequat vel illum dolore eu feugiat nulla facilisis at vero eros et accumsan et iusto odio dignissim qui blandit praesent luptatum zzril delenit augue duis dolore te feugait nulla facilisi Nam liber tempor cum soluta nobis eleifend option congue nihil imperdiet doming id quod mazim placerat facer possim assum Typi non habent claritatem insitam est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum Mirum est notare quam littera gothica quam nunc putamus parum claram anteposuerit litterarum

  • Alternate Link Syntax Proposal
    approaches have their advantages and disadvantages in the end the preferences depend heavily on personal habits and style thus there is a number of wiki engines with one or the other approach This is veru unfortunate for Creole because no matter which option we choose we make implementing the MixedMode in some engines impossible Initially we have chosen to follow the voice of the majority and choose the way of the UseMod wiki with the address first and description last The reason is simple many wikis based their markup on the UseMod s rules There is however a number of text markup standards that use opposite order most notably CrossMark There is however a third way introducing own link markup format that wouldn t conflict with markups of existing wikis This allows to both stay compliant with Creole and retain the preferred order of link and description Addition proposal description link The description is separated from the link with an arrow like pair of characters If there are multiple such pairs in the description the last one is considered to be the separator Advantages used by PmWiki so it is NotNew avoids the pipe character which is not present on all international keyboards the order of link and description is indicated in the markup doesn t conflict with the default link description markup provides alternative to the default order of link and description doesn t depend on smart methods of guessing which part is the link doesn t clash with the table markup or any other existing Creole markup doesn t require modyfying existing rules two character long separator makes it easier to scan the raw text and reduces probability of conflict with other markup Disadvantages new for most users new in Creole the and characters are not available on

  • Add No Wiki Escape Proposal
    type ahead Recent Searches Clear Add No Wiki Escape Proposal Your trail HyphenListMarkupProposal Home ProportionalFontNowikiProposal Home Creole0 5 Home RequireSpaceAfterBulletProposal Home AlternateLinkSyntaxProposal Home View Page Discussion V iew A ttach I nfo The nowiki and preformatted markup syntax doesn t let us quote actual markup for nowiki and preformatted themselves this is especially needed when talking about the syntax or explaining it That s why there is a need to modify or extend the syntax so that it is possible to include in them The solution chosen for nowiki is to include any trailing into the nowiki span so that this foo will produce for whatver actual markup is used instead of nowiki nowiki foo nowiki The preformatted markup syntax requires some kind of an escaping mechanism Fortunately the escaping is only necessary when there is at the beginning of a line present in the block In this case to avoid treating the braces as markup for the end of the block it needs to be indented with a single space Furthermore any line consisting of only indented three closing curly braces will have one space removed from the indentation to allow representing any possible text inside the preformatted block

  • Tables
    please comment on the Talk Tables page Also see the list of table markups Creole only supports very basic table syntax with no alignment It is meant to create simple table like phone lists or top 10 lists It only contains a notion for creating headings and forced line breaks Since Creole 0 3 Simple table Cell 1 1 Cell 1 2 Cell 2 1 Cell 2 2 Table rows

  • Change Linebreak Markup Proposal
    accept Creole if it used blog style line breaks some browsers still don t have support for wrapping text in text areas the feature is not covered by standards there is no way to patch all the browsers to play along with Creole the markup has to be explained too and it s harder to explain markup using no visible characters it discourages use and learning of any other markup makes users confuse line breaks with paragraph ends makes users surprised if non default style especially spacing is used for paragraphs the source is hard to process automatically by various wikibots Wiki like line breaks Single line breaks are treated as spaces everywhere except preformatted blocks Double or more line breaks end paragraphs In tables a line break ends a row To force a line break use separate markup like Advantages Already in use in practically all wikis comfortable for copywriters who can use them to structure the source immune to all weird things that happen when using suspicious editors or text processors like Microsoft Notepad or Microsoft Word doesn t require a modern browser with line wrapping in text area can be easily converted to blog style new lines when needed leave the web designer in control of spacing and layout makes it easy to change the layout without editing every page in a wiki doesn t require the user to be experienced in typography or arts allows the user to just type without worrying how good the text looks makes it easier to handle complicated things like long urls or complicated plugins by allowing to put them alone on a line makes the source text easier to scan and find relevant fragments keeps the paragraphs and line breaks as separate ideas allows posting text with wrapped lines without the need of additional reformatting makes users familiar with world wide standards doesn t suggest one and only one formatting encourages use of other markup which makes it easier to style the page and to process the sources automatically Disadvantages Requires a change in the Creole specification requires enclosing pasted code ascii art poems and addresses into additional markup or using forced line break users can try to use end of paragraph for overriding page layout users have limited the way of expressing the unique style of their contributed text web designer cannot leave it for the users to decide on the spacing users need to learn the markup for the elements they want to use instead of approximating them with line breaks and indentation users can be surprised with the effect if they create their first wiki page without ever looking at and editing existing wiki pages spam looks like spam tables and preformatted blocks create an exception but that s what they are for list markup spec requires amending to make the line break treatment consistent it removes one way of marking a pause in text forcing the users to use both paragraphs and horizontal lines for that
