Unnumbered List Markup: (- or *)#

Character should be -, Accept HyphenListMarkupProposal#

Character should be *, don't specify space after bullet #

Remark: This will set back the spec on this element to 0.5

Is indifferent about * or -#

  • ChuckSmith: while I think the hyphen is easier to read, it will be much easier to implement Creole in existing wikis if the star is used, since practically all wikis have it, so for me it's a toss-up, although I do feel responsible for not implementing the hyphen as the WikiSym workshop had recommended

Accept Escape character as core element (Y or N)?#

Escape character should be core#

  • YvesPiguet
  • Juan Carlos
  • MarkWharton 75%: - It does not work as an addition. It should be core or nothing (i.e. meaning simple escape for preformatted block only).
  • OliverHorn a generic escape mechanism is really needed and imho it belongs to the core
  • ChristophSauer I don't care too much. Since I gave up on hyphens for lists, it does not need to be core anymore. But it would be a good to have it in the core anyway.

Escape character should be addition#

  • Having the character specified, but optional, makes most sense to me, as it mainly applies to wikis that recognize raw (unbracketed) wiki words. AxelRauschmayer
  • I think some developers would be willing to put the work to make it parsable without the escape character, but the escape character throws in too many potential problems. I think it should be optional. As for not being able to write the spec without it, one could you the space or tilde just before the closing curly braces. This is the only escape character that is truly required imho. ChuckSmith
  • MarkWharton 25%: Preformatted escaping (i.e. ~}}}) should be the minimum requirement, full text escaping (i.e. across all the text, not just inside preformatted) should be addition. My only concern is that external links containing ~ become "spoiled" when moving between engines that do/don't support full text escaping. To address that, I'd suggest making external links an exception and not escape them, rather than escape whole Creole markup sequences to avoid the issue (as I understand it).

Escape character (~ or \)?#

Escape character should be ~#

Escape character should be \#

What is escaped by escape character#

Escape character should escape a single character#

  • YvesPiguet
  • MarkWharton
  • Juan Carlos
  • ChristophSauer if it helps making implementation easier
  • OliverHorn the only way to go. I favor the following rule: The escape character (tilde) escapes the following single character if and only if that character is not a letter, a digit or whitespace. In any case, I'm strongly against escaping whole markup sequences because it does not seem useful with regard to additions (the escaping behavior would then depend on the set of markup supported by the wiki engine and could differ between different engines).

Escape character should escape whole Creole markup sequences#
