I noted int awhile back but would like to get it set as an issue.

A page acts as a RemoteWikiLink? when it has a RemoteWikiURL. I would like to propose that without a RemoteWikiURL, the page acts like a RemoteWikiLink? , with the target of the URL being the page's URL. Thus: QuickReferences?:#3 would resolve to http://zwiki.org/QuickReferences#3 , similarly for [Quick references]?:3

I believe in my last proposal I sugguested an implicit #, and possibly using that as a sigil...which resulted in the conclusion that it would make wiki-links too mystical. This may also, but I'd like to discuss it.

There's also an implementation snag in the requirements for the target of a remote wiki link. I'd prefer this to be any text until whitespace and end of page*

I like this suggestion.

  • If it were delimitable, that may make it easier to include following punctuation, but let's worry about that later, but that's a tangent issue which also affects STX hyperlinking.

With newstx I have expanded the characters allowed in URL's to include rfc 1738 (i.e. characters allowed in URL's -- stx didn't get it right). Also I expanded the characters allowed in a link to be absolutely anything between the quotes (including punctuation, any utf-8, etc) and the RHS is again rfc 1738.

I do not think including any character on the RHS of remotewikiurl's should be allowed, because it is undelimited, and because you can easily write things which aren't allowed in urls anyway and would have to be escaped.

What about url's with utf-8 characters, does that ever happen? It might be nicer to write the character itself than escaping it like %048%300.

Makes sense.

:-) I can't imagine this without the use of a start/end delimiter. e.g. If the delmiter exists, url_encode() it. :-)

page-editing might be more apporpriate,but not sure. -- Thu, 28 Oct 2004 14:55:42 -0700 reply
