This page is in no way yet official.  This is somewhat a sandbox for starting work on a Creole Additions page.  This would have optional markup that wiki developers can choose whether they wish to implement or not.

[{TableOfContents title='Overview'}]

== Plug-in/Extension

For those wiki engines which wish to support plug-ins, we recommend double angle brackets:

{{{ &
2000
lt;<CurrentTimePlugin format='yy
2000
yy.MM.dd'>> }}}

Output: [{CurrentTimePlugin format='yyyy.MM.dd'}]

see [[GenericExtensionElementProposal]] and [[HintsOnExtending]]

== Monospace

For those wiki engines which wish to support monospace, we recommend the following syntax.

{{{ This is ##monospace## text. }}}

Recommended XHTML: {{{ This is <tt>monospace</tt> text. }}}

Output: This is {{{monospace}}} text.

== Superscript

For those wiki engines which wish to support superscript, we recommend the following syntax.

{{{ This is ^^superscripted^^ text. }}}

Recommended XHTML: {{{ This is <sup>superscripted</sup> text. }}}

Output: This is %%(vertical-align: super) superscripted%% text.

Comparison:

see also [[SuperscriptAndSubscriptProposal]]

== Subscript

For those wiki engines which wish to support subscript, we recommend the following syntax.  (We need to discuss which is better.)

{{{ This is ~~subscripted~~ text. }}}
or
{{{ This is ,,subscripted,, text. }}}

Recommended XHTML: {{{ This is <sub>subscripted</sub> text. }}}

This is %%(vertical-align: sub) subscripted%% text.

== Underline

For those wiki engines which wish to support underlining, we recommend the following syntax.

{{{ This is __underlined__ text. }}}

Recommended XHTML: {{{ This is <u>underlined</u> text. }}}

Output: This is %%(text-decoration: underline) underlined%% text.

== Alternate Link Syntax

Spaces before and after the arrow are not required.  If there are multiple {{{->}}}, then a link cannot have a {{{->}}}, so that gets passed to the description.

{{{
[[description -> link]]
[[the -> can be used to make a link -> TextFormattingRules]]
}}}

Recommended XHTML:
{{{
<a href="http://www.examplewiki.com/link">description</a>
<a href="http://www.examplewiki.com/TextFormattingRules">the -> can be used to make a link</a>
}}}

Sample output:

[description|link]\\
[the characters -> can be used to make a link|TextFormattingRules]

== Indented paragraphs

Indented paragraphs are paragraphs which begin with a colon or {{{>}}} sign. The
colon must be the first character of the line. Multiple colons define
the level of indenting. Indented paragraphs can contain styled text,
links, spans of verbatim text, and inline extensions.

{{{
This is a normal paragraph.
:This is an indented
paragraph in two lines.
::This is more indented.
}}}

or 

{{{
This is a normal paragraph.
> This is an indented
paragraph in two lines.
>> This is more indented.
}}}

Possible XHTML (separate stylesheets or {{{<dl><dd></dd></dl>}}} also possible):

{{{
<p>This is a normal paragraph.</p>
<div style="margin-left:2em">
<p>This is an indented paragraph in two lines.</p>
<div style="margin-left:2em">
<p>This is more indented.</p>
</div>
</div>
}}}

== Definition lists

Definition lists are made of two kinds of items:
title, typically displayed in bold font, and definition, typically
displayed indented. Titles begin with a semicolon at the beginning of
a line. Definitions either follow the title, separated with a colon;
or they begin on a new line beginning with a colon.

{{{
; First title of definition list
: Definition of first item.
; Second title: Second definition
beginning on the same line.
}}}

Recommended XHTML:

{{{
<dl>
<dt>First title of definition list</dt>
<dd>Definition of first item.</dd>
<dt>Second title</dt>
<dd>Second definition beginning on the same line.</dd>
</dl>
}}}
