Just realized that this didn't exist. would be nice to have.

Mediawiki formatting is:

Summary: please add wiki for <dl><dt><dd>wiki syntax for definition lists

I definitely think that a syntax for definintion lists would be good for Trac. I'll try to look into some of the different syntaxes in use by other wiki engines and compare them.

comment:3 by Christian Boos, 17 years ago

MoinMoin uses:

 term:: definition
 another term:: another definition

I think that's quite good (and given that Trac's wiki syntax is already very much inspired from MoinMoin's one, it's good to remain consistent).

However, one should take care of supporting multi-lines definitions.

 complex thing:: a complex thing often requires
                 more than one line of explanation.
