This page is in no way yet official. This has optional markup that wiki developers can choose whether they wish to implement or not.

Please discuss the features below or new proposals on Talk.Creole Additions first!

Plug-in/Extension#

For those wiki engines which wish to support plug-ins, we recommend double angle brackets:

 <<CurrentTimePlugin format='yyyy.MM.dd'>> 

Output: 2014.04.17

see GenericExtensionElementProposal and HintsOnExtending

Monospace#

For those wiki engines which wish to support monospace, we recommend the following syntax.

 This is ##monospace## text. 

Recommended XHTML: This is <tt>monospace</tt> text.

Output: This is monospace text.

Comparison: http://www.wikimatrix.org/syntax.php?i=26

Superscript#

For those wiki engines which wish to support superscript, we recommend the following syntax.

 This is ^^superscripted^^ text. 

Recommended XHTML: This is <sup>superscripted</sup> text.

Output: This is superscripted text.

Comparison: http://www.wikimatrix.org/syntax.php?i=28

see also SuperscriptAndSubscriptProposal

Subscript#

For those wiki engines which wish to support subscript, we recommend the following syntax.

 This is ,,subscripted,, text. 

Recommended XHTML: This is <sub>subscripted</sub> text.

This is subscripted text.

Underline#

For those wiki engines which wish to support underlining, we recommend the following syntax.

 This is __underlined__ text. 

Recommended XHTML: This is <u>underlined</u> text.

Output: This is underlined text.

Using u is not a very good idea. See the reason at section Monospace.

Usually underline is used to emphasis words. For that we can use * or **. In some case, we can customize it via css. For example, in Chinese, underline means the word is a name (people name, place, etc) just as first-character-Caps in English. For those wikis, we can produce this XHTML,

 This is  <span class="name">underlined</span>. 

We may set the class name as a variable in wiki engine, so wiki admins can write customize the class name to fit their needs in a config file/page.

Alternate Link Syntax#

Spaces before and after the arrow are not required. If there are multiple ->, then a link cannot have a ->, so that gets passed to the description.

[[description -> link]]
[[the -> can be used to make a link -> TextFormattingRules]]

Recommended XHTML:

<a href="http://www.examplewiki.com/link">description</a>
<a href="http://www.examplewiki.com/TextFormattingRules">the -> can be used to make a link</a>

Sample output:

description
the characters -> can be used to make a link

Indented paragraphs#

Indented paragraphs are paragraphs which begin with a colon or > sign. The colon must be the first character of the line. Multiple colons define the level of indenting. Indented paragraphs can contain styled text, links, spans of verbatim text, and inline extensions.

This is a normal paragraph.
:This is an indented
paragraph in two lines.
::This is more indented.

or

This is a normal paragraph.
> This is an indented
paragraph in two lines.
>> This is more indented.

Possible XHTML (separate stylesheets or <dl><dd></dd></dl> also possible):

At least MediaWiki and Oddmuse are using dl with empty or no dt to indent text. This is simple, but it's a wrong use of definition list.

<p>This is a normal paragraph.</p>
<div style="margin-left:2em">
<p>This is an indented paragraph in two lines.</p>
<div style="margin-left:2em">
<p>This is more indented.</p>
</div>
</div>

Definition lists#

Definition lists are made of two kinds of items: title, typically displayed in bold font, and definition, typically displayed indented. Titles begin with a semicolon at the beginning of a line. Definitions either follow the title, separated with a colon; or they begin on a new line beginning with a colon.

; First title of definition list
: Definition of first item.
; Second title: Second definition
beginning on the same line.

Recommended XHTML:

<dl>
<dt>First title of definition list</dt>
<dd>Definition of first item.</dd>
<dt>Second title</dt>
<dd>Second definition beginning on the same line.</dd>
</dl>
