As wikis are hypertext environments, they will usually need a way to mark [InternalLink]s and, as they do not exist in vacuum, also [ExternalLink]s. Many articles refer to external materials, either by just mentioning them (often in footnotes or bibliography), or by using [QuotedText]. Both need to specify the source.
Articles and discussions often benefit from [IncludedFigures], both in form of images, drawings, photographs, and in form of mathematical equations, diagrams, charts and tables, maps, etc.

It is not the [CreoleScope] to enforce any particular style of writing on the user, but one is sure: **stylistically correct text should be possible and easy to create**, with minimized amount of additional work like fancy formatting or escaping. Apart from properly styled text, also various notes, text in loose, informal form, common shortcuts and notations, etc. should be possible to put on the wiki with minimal effort -- for the sake of discussion and collaboration on the articles. Of course, this will vary from country to country and from culture to culture -- **at least basic English is a must**, as it seems to be an informal "universal language" of the Internet.
