I expect CREOLE to be a unifying force which will provide a standardization of sorts similar to the W3C recommendations. I've got a few suggestions:

I'd like to suggest some additions/changes which are in line with the currently proposed standard:


__Underlined text__

Creole: {{{ __Underlined text__ }}} (two underscores)

Proposed XHTHML: {{{ <span class="underlined"> </span> }}}

__Stricken text__

Creole: {{{ --Stricken text-- }}}

Proposed XHTML: {{{ <del> </del> }}}

__Superscripted text__

Creole: {{{ ^^This is superscripted text^^ }}}

Proposed XHTML: {{{ <sup> </sup> }}}

__Subscripted text__

Creole: {{{ ~~This is subscripted text~~ }}}

Proposed XHTML: {{{ <sub> </sub> }}}

__No wiki markup__

While I realise that you could use the {{{ {{{ / <pre> }}} code for this, people might not want to have some markup parsed without it being interpreted as "code". I would like to suggest using:

{{{ ==no markup== }}}  for simple no markup sections.

{{{ {{code}} }}} on a line of their own would be more logical for blocks of {{{ <code> }}}. It would also be more in line with the rest of Creole if these were double instead of tripple, while another option might be:

{{{ >> preformatted << }}} for regular preformatted text?



I'd like to suggest a small addition to the table definition. To define something as a header entry, we could use the DokuWiki syntax with a minor modification:

|^ header cell  |^ header cell |
| normal cell   | normal cell |
|^ header cell  | normal cell |
| normal cell   | normal cell |

Proposed XHTML: {{{ <th> </th> }}}


Is it possible to change the headlines standard to an exclamation mark? Or at least make it optional? A lot of people seem to find exclamation marks more logical.

!Level 1 headline!
!!Level 2 headline!!
