Problem Statement #

Styling directives cannot be specified in Creole 1.0 syntax and, as a result, the 'look' of a document presented in the context of a wiki article cannot be reproduced. A wiki author's alternative is to drop into XHTML syntax, however XHTML markup is often not honored by wiki engines, meaning no alternative is actually available to wiki authors needing such functionality.

Furthermore, annotation information (as can be specified via XHTML attributes) cannot be represented using Creole 1.0 syntax despite strong industry trends towards adoption of 'semantic wiki' technology.

Creole Requirements#

XHTML functionality now unsupported by Creole 1.0 include:
  1. global attributes -- id, class, name, dir, style, ...
  2. element attributes -- compact, nowrap, rules, ...
  3. rdfa attributes -- rel, rev, resource, about, ...
  4. <style> element -- to support user-specified styling

Is there interest in pursuing this syntax???#
