In the meantime, the simple escape mechanism proposed here for preformatted blocks, I believe, is both adequate and safe. If we don't end up with an escape character then this is the best alternative, without a doubt. Having said that, I will endeavour to work through my escape thinking over the next few weeks and input into any escape arguments.

Creaole and other wiki-syntaxes like it really fall short if you have lots of external (and therefore often long) links. This is especially the case when using Creole as a Blog-Language, or when writing scientific documents (or other texts where you have to carefully cite your sources).
Therefore it would be great if the parsing rules could be relaxed a bit, so that if a link with description has the link at the second position and the first is clearly not a link, it still gets shown sensible.
That would help greatly.

What's the problem?
-- [[YvesPiguet]], 2007-Sep-20
how would additional links like the ones used in http://trac.edgewall.org best fit into creole? --ThurnerRupert
Which additional links?
-- [[ChuckSmith]], 2007-Okt-17 15:08 (CEST)
What about underline and strikethrough?
-- Mo 2008-Mar-14
Underline is an [[CreoleAdditions|addition]]. Strikethrough is not defined (yet?). It's been discussed at different places, though; do a search for "strike".

== Self-contradiction in escape character
I find it self-contradicting or at least ambiguous. On one hand, it says, that escape character escapes just the following character, i. e.
{{{
~http://localhost
}}}
should be rendered as
{{{
http:<em>localhost</em>
}}}
On the other hand it says a tilde escapes the whole URI.
It is obscure, whether
{{{
~** bold ** text
}}}
should be rendered as
{{{
** bold ** text
}}}
(escaping the whole pattern, as an URL) or
{{{
** bold <strong> text </strong>
}}}
If escaping URI as a whole is an exception, it should be explicitly marked as such.

In front of something which is converted automagically, such as a URL (but not explicit markup), it prevents the conversion. Elsewhere (except in nowiki, preformatted and inside URL, or in front of a blank), it escapes a single character.
-- [[YvesPiguet]], 2008-04-04
The EscapeCharacterProposal is somewhat different from the final spec. I don't like ~~ in URLs be considered escapes. They are common in user URLs and there is no need escaping a character that is not considered special by Creole.
* {{{http://example.org/~user/}}} -> http://example.org/~user/
On this Wiki, ~~ escapes the URL, but the URL is parsed as inline text:
* {{{~http://example**.org**/~user/}}} is rendered ~http://example**.org**/~user/
* {{{~http://example//.org///~user/}}} is rendered ~http://example//.org///~user/
Another test; Creole formatting inside URLs:
* {{{http://example//.org///~user/}}} -> http://example//.org///~user/
* {{{http://example**.org**/~user/}}} -> http://example**.org**/~user/
-- [[LarsChristensen]], 23-May-2008
Please don't consider what this wiki is doing to be "the final spec". The implementation isn't perfect. You've pointed out a few deficiencies here for sure. Tildes in urls are fairly common and Croele should treat them as any other character.
[[http://werkzeug.pocoo.org/e/simplewiki/tildes_in_urls|This wiki]] uses Creole and it does a better job with your tests. ;)

= Example with two opening braces? =
The current (12-May-2008) page gives the following example for inline NoWiki markup:
{{{
{{if (a>b) { b = a; }}}
}}}
There are only two opening braces. Is that intentional?
-- [[Ben Kovitz]], 12-May-2008
The parser is having trouble with this. There should be three opening braces and four closing ones.
An admin needs to unlock the page to fix it (or add a comment that it is not displaying correctly).
-- [[StephenDay]], 13-May-2008
Thanks for the clarification. I'm implementing the ~{{{ just as a token, and not bothering trying to match up braces inside the Nowiki text with any braces that occur before the ~}}} appears.

== Use of TT tag for representing code
For code rendered using the {{{{{{ }}}}}} technique, would it not be better for the markup to be <code></code> tags rather than <tt></tt> tags, as the former gives semantic meaning and allows the browser to choose an appropriate font, wheras the latter is simply a display tag?
-- M1ke, 18-May-2008
Creole doesn't specify that <tt></tt> be used, it's just a suggested implementation. <code> could be used, as could <span>, or no markup at all (or whatever).
