I saw the external link marker on the Squeak SmallWiki prototype; I
saw that they're css based in wikipedia - does the prototype implement
them the same way, and if yes, what do I have to alter to use them in
my own wiki?
I checked this site, but I don't understand what you mean with the
external link marker?
The syntax of SmallWiki 1  allows to alias links, is that what you
are interested in? Else there is always the possibility to put raw html
into your wiki pages, e.g. the two are equivalent:
SmallWiki 2 will have a slightly enhanced syntax for links, e.g. it
will support explicit embedding of any internal page, file, ... by
putting something like *+Link+*. What is more it provides dynamic
links, so one could write *isbn:123456789* and the wiki would
automatically generate a link to a pre-configured bookstore.
- 1 ----------------------------------------------------------
To create a link, put it between *s. There are three different types of
Internal Link: If the item exists in the Smallwiki (e.g. *Title of
Item*), a link to that item shows up when the page is saved. In case
the item does not already exist, the link shows up with a create-button
next to it; click on it to create the new item.
External Link: If the link is a valid url (e.g.
*http://www.google.ch*), a link to that external page shows up.
Mail Link: If the link is an email address (e.g. *self(a)mail.me.com*), a
link to mail that person shows up, but it is obfuscated to prevent
robots from collecting.
You can also alias all these links using >. So, you can create a link
like this: *Alias>Reference*. The link will show up as Alias, but link
to Reference. For images, the alias text will become the alternate text
for the image.
