The following goals were formulated at the [WikiSym2006]. Every participant then had three votes to determine which were the most important to them for discussion. Goals that had more than four votes are in bold. These were then used as the key goals around which the later discussions were formulated: if we got stuck when trying to make a decision, we'd look at the goals again and see which of our choices matched mostly closely to the 4 top goals.

== More Possible Goals, Ideas, Principles
These were **not** formulated at wikisym 06, still it might be interesting to hear new ideas, so feel free to add yours here...
* different characters for different actions where possible -> e.g. do not use the same for bold and lists
* number of characters fixed for elements with fixed size -> always two {{{ [[x]], **x**, //x//, {{x}} }}}
* start with one character for elements, adding more chars changes size or indentation {{{ =h1, ==h2, *e1, **e1.1 }}}
* also think of non-techies (the grandma rule)
* the rule of least surprise -- allow to guess the effect by just looking at the markup, don't make it dependent on external info, like page existence or whether page is image or text
* have style and avoid ugly markup
