Creole Syntax

Creole 1 is a new wiki markup language - its goal is to become the one common wiki syntax and enable better exchange of content between different wiki engines.

This page introduces you to the most important elements of the creole syntax, showing first the markup verbatim and then how it is rendered by the wiki engine. Please note that some of the features depend on your configuration.

BTW: This very page is written in creole syntax!
