List markup character (- or *)#

List markup character should be - #

  • ChuckSmith: avoids conflicts with bold, was more used before wikis for lists
  • Axel Rauschmayer: weakly, I can live with any solution that has been proposed so far. Still: Asterisks look "fat" and unnatural for lists. Single dashes look good and feel natural (admittedly, multiple dashes do not look so good). The solution I'm using in my wiki is whitespace plus '-' (ListMarkupAlternatives) and I found that usability only suffers in extreme cases, while basic cases look really nice (and can be pasted into an email without confusing the recipient).

List markup character should be * #

  • Radomir Dopieralski: asterisks are massively more popular on wikis and are not as confusing when used to form nested lists

Space required after character (Y or N)?#

Space required after character#

  • RadomirDopieralski: many users do not use a space after the character and this lack of requirement would make Creole potentially confusing and non-user-friendly by inviting unreadable markup

Space NOT required after character#

  • ChuckSmith: strongly, many users do not use a space after the character and this extra requirement would make Creole potentially confusing and non-user-friendly
  • Axel Rauschmayer: weakly, I always use a space and don't see why users shouldn't be guided towards nicer markup. Furthermore, if using dashes, the space is essential for disambiguating with negative numbers.

Escape character desired (Y or N)?#

Escape character desired#

  • ChuckSmith: weakly, this would help considerably in discussions revolving around code issues

Escape character NOT desired#

  • RadomirDopieralski: strongly, escape character is a complicated geek solution, InvisibleMarkup, invites ugly markup rules in all the rest of Creole
  • Axel Rauschmayer: strongly, complicates things, Creole should stay simple and nowiki can be used here.

Escape character (or \)?#

Escape character should be ~#

  • ChuckSmith: strongly, does not conflict with line breaks, and is not likely to be in text already

Escape character should be \#

  • RadomirDopieralski: if an escape character is used at all, it should be the traditional one, with the traditional behavior.

Monospace and nowiki#

nowiki is monospace in in-line and block#

nowiki is only monospace in block#

  • ChuckSmith: if you want in-line nowiki, you probably do not want monospace, whereas block nowiki typically depicts something that should be displayed in monospace

nowiki is always (inline + block) monospace, use other construct (double braces?) for inline plain-text nowiki#

  • Axel Rauschmayer: weakly, this would look more consistent. We do need inline plain nowiki, so my 2nd-favorite solution is "nowiki is only monospace in block".

nowiki is never monospace#


Monospace font style desired (Y or N)?#

Monospace font style desired#

  • Axel Rauschmayer: weakly, I used this font style frequently when writing about code, but can live with (ab)using a monospace version of nowiki here.

Monospace font style NOT desired#
