It is not opening a state, because you can use __ easily within Zim and nothing will happen unless you use another __ in the same line. One __ by itself has no special meaning at all and thus is no state change. <ctrl-I> is. A more computer-scientific way to see is, that for <ctrl-I>, (editing) sequence matters, while for __ it doesn't. If I type "text__" and then go back and add "__" in front, it has the intended effect. On the other hand if I type "text<ctrl-I>" and then go back and press "<ctrl-I>" in front, obviously nothing happens. Hence, __ is stateless while <ctrl-I> isn't. > I never said that wiki markup must be abandoned. I said that it should > be optional. I've said that repeatedly. I understand that there is a > need for wiki markup, and that some people like it, and that is fine. That's what I uderstood as well. Just your question "do you really need the ability to type **text**?" seemed to imply that I may not need to type **text**. If that implication was unintended, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. -- Fabian Moser
