Welcome to Creole, we are glad you are with us.

Your comments on quotes are very helpful, I didn't know about that mozilla guidelines. Seems like you have some very good ideas.

I'm impressed with your parser, it can even handle things like {{{//italic **bold italic// bold**//}}} and generate proper html for them!

However, it behaes weird on this input:

Thanks a lot for your help, Radomir. I worked on the problem of newlines in links and it should be fixed now.

About the parser: large part of the code is taken from Text_Wiki, so its developers are the people who deserve your compliments. But... thanks! ;)


Seems something has changed for the worse as {{{//italic **bold italic// bold**//}}} produces {{{<p><em>italic <strong>bold italic</em> bold</strong>//</p>}}}.

You're right, Jared, the parser is not yet so smart to avoid this kind of crossing elements. This could also involve links. Radomir, I suspect you used "View selection source" in Firefox... Is it possible?

These cases cannot be easily recognised in Text_Wiki using regular expressions. The only solution I can imagine is counting the tags (actually 'tokens' generated by previous rules) inside the body of a new found element, to avoid encapsulating a single opening or closing tag. Any suggestion?
