This page is in no way yet official. This is somewhat a sandbox for starting work on a Creole Additions page. This would have optional markup that wiki developers can choose whether they wish to implement or not.
[{TableOfContents title='Overview'}]
!!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 %%(vertical-align: super) superscripted%% text.
Comparison:

!!Subscript
For those wiki engines which wish to support subscript, we recommend the following syntax. (We need to discuss which is better.)
{{{ This is ~~subscripted~~ text. }}}
or
{{{ This is ,,subscripted,, text. }}}
Recommended XHTML: {{{ This is <sub>subscripted</sub> text. }}}
This is %%(vertical-align: sub) subscripted%% text.
Comparison on wikimatrix:

!!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 %%(text-decoration: underline) underlined%% text.
!!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 -&gt; can be used to make a link</a>
}}}
Sample output:
[description|link]\\
[the characters -> can be used to make a link|TextFormattingRules]
!!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:

!!Escape character
It is often troublesome to use the nowiki in-line to display symbols of wiki syntax, so it would be useful to have an escape character that could be put before wiki syntax to prevent it from being interpreted. The tilde was chosen not to conflict with line breaks and because it is a very infrequently used character. It is not generally easy to type, but it will also not need to be used often, so in this sense it is also suitable.
The escape character only escapes in certain combinations. This means that e.g. the tilde in this use case is displayed as tilde and not escaped. It would certainly **never** escape if followed by a space or an alphanumeric character.

}}}
Escape characters only trigger if you use it in combination with the occurrence of a character that has special meaning in creole and would otherwise be rendered as markup. For example if you use "tilde + equal sign as first characters in a line" it will escape the equal sign and display it as such because otherwise it would be rendered as heading
{{{
=Heading
~=Line starting with equal sign, this displays a normal tilde: ~
}}}
If a escape character is only used in certain combinations we have a minimum of collisions with existing markup. For example if an wiki uses tilde as normal markup, it would not collide with e.g.
{{{
~=This is a heading
~this is subscript in certain wikis~
~~=This is a sentence with a tilde and an equal sign at the beginning... (tilde escapes itself)
}}}
Here's a complete list that would cause the escape character (e.g. tilde) to trigger escaping of the following character combinations. This can be extended as need be. Note also that an escape character can be escaped by putting a space after it, since a space cannot be escaped.
{{{
Escapes Markup Combination Constraint Example:
============== ========================== =========
Bold Anywhere ~**
Italics Anywhere ~//
Unordered Lists Hyphen, first chars in line ~-
Ordered Lists First chars in line ~#
Headings Equal signs, first chars in line ~=
Links Open Anywhere ~[[
Inside Links Within Links [[A pipe ~| is used within links]]
Links Close Anywhere ~]]
Line Breaks Anywhere ~\\
Horizontal Line First chars in line ~----
Image Open Anywhere ~{{
Image Close Anywhere ~}}
Table Open First chars in line ~| this is | not a table
Inside Tables Pipe used within a table cell | x~|y |
Escaping Escape Anywhere ~~
Escaping Escape Anywhere ~<space>
Nowiki Open First chars in line ~{{{
Nowiki Close First chars in line ~~}}}
}}}
So, for example, this markup:
{{{
{{{
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
if argc>0 {
if argc<=1 {
--argc;
~~}}}
~}}}
}}}
will produce this result:
{{{
<pre>
int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
if argc>0 {
if argc<=1 {
--argc;
~}}}
</pre>
}}}
----
Creole:
{{{
Some examples of markup are: {{{** <i>this</i> ** ~}}}
}}}
Recommended XHTML:
{{{
Some examples of markup are: <tt>** &lt;i&gt;this&lt;/i&gt; **</tt>
}}}
Sample output:
Some examples of markup are: {{{** <i>this</i> **}}}
