'Colon' denotes point of view in ordinary English usage, as in dialogue. All chat developers know this. mediawiki knows this. But somehow the period is going to be overloaded yet again to create namespaces ? When the primary use of namespaces is to differentiate a POV, i.e. that of the service, or that of an individual user, or another meta-perspective, from the main namespace?

Colons in URLs certainly tell the browser which protocol it's going to speak. Likewise, the rules of handling content will vary drastically based on which namespace it's in. There's a natural convergence between the use of colons in URLs and the use of colons in English, which mediawiki respects. Creole should too.

We are extremely happy about your interest in Creole, but could you please try to put your comments in the places where you think they belong? It's extremely hard to understand them when they appear out of context.

In particular, I don't understand what are you so agitated about? Creole doesn't use colon for markup anywhere in it, and it doesn't specify anything about namespaces -- in fact, we decided to leave "names" out of Creole spec because of InternationalizationConcerns.

Besides, English is not the only valid language out there. -- RadomirDopieralski, 2007-02-05
