(This primarily refers to the main text of Creole 0.5, but indirectly also to the reasoning page.)

I find the text in Creole 0.5 (final) difficult to understand. The issues of preformatted and no-wiki seem to run into each other. It is unclear why the first section is called "Preformatted" (should'nt it be ("Preformatted and nowiki"?), the second section on escaping mentions both, but seems to deal exclusively with the block-style preformatted. Escaping inline-nowiki seems to be not discussed.

It is unclear to me, why Creole wants to force users who simply happen to have text containing some wiki-interpreted element (like double asterisk, or double square brackets, or double backslash (e.g. when discussing visual basic office macros, plenty of double backslash...) that the "offending" text cannot simple be nowike, but must also be in teletype font (expressed both verbally and in tt-xhtml markup example.

With respect to the latter point, the Creole definition and the reasoning page seem to be in contradiction, reasoning says: "There must be a way for users to enter text which will not be formatted by the wiki engine" - but creole enforces tt-format!

I agree. I suggest to have separate markup for inline no-wiki, which could be called verbatim like in LaTeX (Creole is about markup, not full wiki applications), and to have symmetric, two-character markup for tt, like all other styles in 0.5 and proposals. We could keep {{{}}} for verbatim and use ## for tt (monospace), which wouldn't be new. Nyctergatis implements and documents just that.

Probably you should read "... which will not be parsed by the wiki engine". Inner markup, inside the nowiki text, won't be parsed and formatted.

A sort of inline escaping is discussed here: Escape Character Proposal. See the talk page, also.
