  • Hyphens And Dashes
    The hyphens on the other hand are a part of the word they are used when a word consists of two parts connected too loosely to write them together but too close to write them separately They are also used for hyphenating a word breaking it at the right margin when there is not enough space to fit it whole In the tradition of European and others print there are several horizontal line characters used each of them has different looks meaning and purpose Not all of them are used to this day but the most common ones minus sign hyphen figure dash en dash and em dash When the typewriters were introduced the technical limitations made every character on their keyboard scarce thus the minus sign was butchered made a little longer and lowered to serve as a replacement for all the horizontal line characters The new character was named dash or minus dash Its exact meaning can be usually guessed from the context but in cases where it mattered various tricks were used to distinguish its various uses When computers were created they commonly used teletype terminals and later more advanced teletype terminal emulators that all inherited the butchered typewriter character With appearance of the desktop computers Apple and come back of proportional width fonts also the various horizontal line characters returned Unfortunately there is no standard easy way of typing them on the used to be teletype keyboard and most users are not even aware of them See Hyphen minus on Wikipedia The number of characters that these glyphs take depends on the encoding used they are always single glyphs though Following the RFC es for URLs none of these characters are allowed in URL s unquoted instead the dash minus glyph is commonly used The tricks

  • Hard Line Breaks
    break that is saved explicitly in the text by putting in a line break character that is not visible to human readers but will be used by parsers A human user inserts this invisible character when he hits return Some software products also might insert hard line breaks when they wrap the line Hard wrapping software should not be used to author wiki markup because it can put characters in text as a first character in a line Those character then get special meaning in the wiki markup although the author did not intend it If you use hard wrapping software in conjunction with a wiki you should check the inserted wiki text Potential problems occur with Equal Signs Headings Number Signs Numbered Lists Asterisk Unnumbered Lists Tables required one line for one row Any text in blog like linebreaks mode Lists unless MultilineListItems are accepted Software that hard wraps the line Outlook by default E Mail text get s wrapped BBEdit optional TextWrangler optional please add more examples here Another example is the line wrapping options in text area fields for browsers special to Netscape and IE no HTML standard Netscape and IE allow hard line breaks like this

    command to span join cells Should it add the indicated cell to the previous on a per cell basis c1 c2 c3 c4 r1 lt ct rt r2 Should it be modifier to skip until the next markup command or content is encountered r1c2 spans until r1c5 r2c1 spans until plain text appears in r2c4 but r2c5 is empty cell c1 c2 c3 c4 c5 r1 lt ct rt r2 etc The logic would still need to be determined due to some potentially confusing or illogical combinations To maintain consistency with the alignment markup if a span modifier is used it must by a continuation of the cell indicator without conflicting with existing or proposed markup if markup such as insert is considered Update 2007 Nov 13 If the span modifier is used followed by any number of white space before the cell s content markup is encountered ex r8c7 r8c9 then the white space would indicate the termination of cell property s markup The order shouldn t matter for the cell modifiers nor if whitespace is contained in the cell to span i e ignore SPs and TABs It would mean the parser would have to keep track of columns when row spanning and would have to evaluate the row entirely before rendering most of the row Column spanning hasn t been addressed yet but I don t see that as frequently in most Wiki markup MarkStinson 2007 Nov 12 I would like to suggest that the be optional for the first item of a definition So the following two blocks would be equivalent with the second being somewhat cleaner Term definition Term 2 definition Term definition Term 2 definition This means a newline ends each dt which seems reasonable as most of the time one line is enough StephenDay 2007 Nov 12 Why would you do that If most of the time is correct which I agree with then the exception wouldn t be supported anymore with lines of bounded length And the more you relax the rules the less readable and the more risky the markup becomes see for instance past discussion about bullet lists and spaces after the stars YvesPiguet 2007 Nov 13 For the most common use case one term followed by one definition users would only have to remember the and not the The behavior of definition terms would be more like headings than list items which seems to make sense also After all if a term is so long that multiple lines are needed the definition list is probably not being used correctly in the first place I first thought about this when implementing it in Creoleparser py where it just seemed that rendering Term definition Term 2 definition as two terms without definitions was not very intuitive StephenDay 2007 Nov 13 I don t like the ideas you mentioned they go against my knowledge about designing good user interfaces and text markup is in this case a user interface make it monotonous if the users know how to do simple tasks they should be able to guess how to make the more complicated ones We followed this when designing image links for example Adding a colon when there is more than one line is completely arbitrary and cannot be guessed in any way there should be one obvious way to do it if you want headings then use headings be forgiving if the user does something incorrectly don t punish him with errors instead design the interface so that it s impossible to enter incorrect values and try to treat the values entered in the best possible way but retain continuity so that the users can see what s wrong and can guess how to correct it That being said I really like the idea that popped up somewhere on this wiki to go meta make the parser recognize patterns of simple markup some kind of markup markup In the case of definition lists you d just have a list with bold text at the beginning This kind of meta markup could be also applied in other places for example for table headings but we already have markup for that and it s consistent with heading markup Then again this technique could have some unexpected unwanted effects sometimes so we d need to do some testing on live users RadomirDopieralski 2007 Nov 14 hmm your second point sounds like the zen of Python nice language But for wiki markup maybe the Perl motto is more appropriate i e there is more than one way to do it Forgive me if this discussion has already been beaten to death somewhere else It just seems that the Creole 1 0 spec is already fairly relaxed and that s a good thing StephenDay 2007 Nov 14 The principle was around much longer than Python it just happens that the Python language is also designed with usability in mind Perl well perl was created with convenience in mind convenience of particular persons who were already used to tools like grep and awk and convenience with particular tasks especially text processing It s a great language very terse and quick to write in unfortunately it s also pretty hard to learn We want Creole to be easy to learn in the first place even if it means an additional character typed here and there occasionally Look at the image links they are very verbose One could make them much shorter by just adding a third argument to normal links or to images But then it would be impossible to guess On the other hand we leave a lot of wiggle room and flexibility of the spec for developers We know that developing a wiki engine is hard already We know that many of the engines being developed are created specifically to experiment among other things also with markup We believe that the developers are experienced and knowledgeable enough to make the decisions after all they need to

  • Hints On Extending
    Note that the current categorization of inline markup vs block markup is criticized in the BlockMarkupNotionCriticism Markup potentially free for taking Inline markup The inline text spans are usually marked up with double characters In case where parameters are needed the pipe character is suggested as a separator suggested for subscript text suggested for inline code fragments suggested for LaTeX or MathML plugins suggested for superscript text suggested for footnotes suggested for underlined highlighted text suggested for deleted text warning possible collision with heading markup suggested for added text suggested for inline quotes Block markup Blocks are usually marked up with at least triple characters alone on a line It is sometimes desired for consistency reasons to have the same markup for inline elements suggested for plugins suggested for qotations poems suggested for block quotes suggested for display equations in LaTeX or MathML plugins Character markup inline This is for inserting characters that are hard to type from standard keyboards They should be surrounded by whitespace punctuation or appear at the beginning or end of a line suggested for en dash suggested for em dash suggested for horizontal ellipsis suggested for left double quotation mark suggested for right double quotation mark suggested for low double comma quotation mark R suggested for registered trademark sign c suggested for copyright sign TM suggested for trademark symbol 2 suggested for superscript 2 3 suggested for superscript 3 Special objects markup block For inserting things like separators signatures tables of content This appears alone on a line suggested for separators suggested for signature suggested for separators suggested as a TODO mark Special objects inline Some objects are characteristic enough to be detected even in flowing text suggested for smiling face emoticon suggested for frowning face emoticon foo bar baz e mail addresses can be
