What about the alt text for images?

-- RadomirDopieralski, 2006-10-04

I'm not sure I understand what CREOLE 0.2 is good for. Why are we changing standards again? Do we discuss each item again? What are the goals for CREOLE 1.0? Do you try to create a feature complete syntax from what was intended as a basic common denominator set?

Creole 0.2 violates Goals#

In particular:

  1. Using {{..}} for pre is not collision free - {{..}} is used by MediaWiki for templates. This is a huge collision - it would prevent Creole co-existing with MediaWiki, probably the most popular wiki of them all. (Being collsion free is the number one goal.)
  2. Using <<..>> for images. This violates goal 4, Not New. According to wikimatrix no wiki uses <<..>> for images.
  3. Using <<..>> for images is not collision free - it collides with TiddlyWiki's use of <<..>> for macros.

I see that some changes have been reverted, and so the previous comments should be considered resolved. But I've noticed that the syntax for placeholders is still different form previous version:


Is it intended, or simply forgotten?

Apart from this, I would like to see quotations and simple tables included into Creole 0.2. From my point of view, they would make Creole much more useful. I see there's some discussion about tables, but nothing about quotations... This is quite surprising!

I think the chosen goals are reasonable and important, and the proposed syntax is quite good for satisfying them. But probably now having some use cases would help a lot.
