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...) webdev framework. I looked at the syntax of
several wikis and tried to create an easy to write (and to parse)
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 :)
: I believe everyone has to build one on its own ;)
