Care must be taken, when parsing tables, to never treat the pipe characters included in links, images and nowiki spans as cell separators:

| table cell | table cell | table cell |
| {{{pre|cell}}} | ~{{image|cell~}} | ~[cell~|link] |

table cell table cell table cell
{{{table|cell}}} {{table|cell}} [table|cell]

Huh? What is going on with this pre block? Why are the insides of it parsed? %)

You mean the second one? - because the JSPWikiCreoleFilter assumes that it is an image and replaces it with the ImagePlugin of JSPWiki. Since we did not define a general EscapeCharacter yet, it is not possible to tell the current version of the CreoleFilter not to render it... I guess it's a good example of the ambiguity itself :) - please look into the source code to see the plain code example until that is fixed...

I mean the first one. Since when are images allowed in preformatted blocks? :)

Something is completely screwed up here... yes, work in progress ;).

I am missing how this is an ambiguity. To me it seems like a simple parser error. Could someone please elaborate on this?

Well, technically none of Creole markup is an ambiguity, because it is defined exactly how it should be treated. So these are not really ambiguities, just some counter-intuitive points.

I just thought this is a similar point -- a potfall for a programmer. Sure, the way that Creole does is intuitive, but the straightforward "naive" implementation would get it wrong. Actually, I got it wrong at first too.

I think it's useful to put a warning here. Feel free to rename it to something else than "ambiguity".
