digitalmars.D.bugs - Nit: wiki4d support for *bold* format? Deprecated?

<alert comment="nit from wiki newbie" priority="low">

I was attempting to wiki-author feedback related to documentation. It seems 
like *bold* formatting doesn't work ... at least for me. ''Italic 
formatting'' with matched pairs of ' seems to work ok, so I was surprised 
*bold* didn't result in the expected bolding. <b>Bold</b> worked fine.

I did some fussing on the TestPage without getting various combinations of 
*bold*, **bold**, etc. to work as expected. Has this been deprecated?

Odd, but looooooow priority to fix. I prefer html tags with <b> and <i> 
anyway.

''This''' is bold. I hope this is close enough. Helmut Leitner (http://www.prowiki.org/wiki4d/wiki.cgi?HelmutLeitner) runs Wiki4D and he might be able to change this, but it might create problems since * is already used for bullet lists. By the way, this newsgroup is more intended for bugs in the compiler and the D Specification. Since Walter doesn't run Wiki4D, so he can't change how Wiki4D works. Also, when you're in edit mode, there's a list of hints below the edit box, too (they're easier to read on the page): <quote> separator: ---- ; highlights: '''bold''', ''italic'', '''''bold and italic'''''; links: JoinedWords, AnotherWiki:WikiPage, {{link in curly brackets}}; lists: * item; ** item; numbered lists: # item; ## item; pictures: http://.../file.jpg; web pages: http://...html; books: ISBN: code; titles: =chapter 1=, ==chapter 2=, ===chapter 3=; e-mail: mailto:name domain.land tables: [[table] ...lines of comma-separated columns...]; </quote> Hope that helps. -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/

Noted, and thanks for your patience with this newbie going thru D immersion. :-) Previously, I wondered if the post about the zlib.uncompress was mis-posted. That seemed ok, and I didn't know where the appropriate place for the wiki4d problem should be. I suppose the dsource forum or the actual wiki4d? Lynn A.

We sometimes talk about wikis in the main D newsgroup, but mostly we just discuss wiki stuff by editing the wiki pages. You can edit a page and ask a question (e.g., I noticed the bold comment on the TestPage before I even saw this thread). Also, you can leave a message in the WikiHelp section on someone's page (such as JustinCalvarese). Every time a page is changed it shows up in "News" (a/k/a RecentChanges), so it's pretty easy to spot when someone's working on something in the wiki. And the "diff" links quickly shows what changed. -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/
