I have to agree. '''''bold and italic''''' is definitely not what I
understand as an intuitive syntax.

I did some work on designing an easy wiki syntax for a wiki plugin for
my (yet another...)[1] webdev framework. I looked at the syntax of
several wikis and tried to create an easy to write (and to parse)
syntax: http://gedankenkonstrukt.de/konstrukt/syntax.html

This actually has been implemented and works fine. It's not released yet
and also not intended to be a base for a perl6-wiki. I'm just posting it
to suggest a possible syntax. Interestingly it is very similar to
Markdown although I never heard about it before :)


[1]: I believe everyone has to build one on its own ;)
