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'}]

== Plug-in/Extension

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

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

Output: [{CurrentTimePlugin format='yyyy.MM.dd'}]

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.

== 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.

== 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.

== 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 -> can be used to make a link</a>
}}}

Sample output:

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