Description Chris Simmons 2007-06-03 15:08:09 UTC
This change allows to use the ! exclamation mark to produce Roman Numeral style Ordered Lists. Placing a ! in the first character position of any line, with a space immediately after it, will produce i, ii, iii, iv and so forth instead of 1, 2, 3, 4, and so forth.


Line 2002
else if ('!' == $char ) { $result .= '<ol class=roman><li>'; }

Line 2015
if ( '*' == $char || '#' == $char ) { return '</li><li>'; }

if ( '*' == $char || '#' == $char || '!' == $char) { return '</li><li>'; }

Line 2032
else if ( '#' == $char ) { $text = '</li></ol>'; }

else if ( '#' == $char || '!' == $char) { $text = '</li></ol>'; }

Line 2076
$prefixLength = strspn( $oLine, '*#:;' );

$prefixLength = strspn( $oLine, '*#:;!' );

In the CSS sheet being used, add the following line:

ol.roman { list-style-type: upper-roman; }
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-06-03 19:31:48 UTC
It would make more sense to have a generalized format for this, if anything (what about lower-roman, uppercase and lowercase letters, non-English conventions, ...?).  See bug 6539.  Since that was viewed as an unacceptable increase in wikitext complexity, probably this is too.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-06-04 19:37:37 UTC
Wiki formatting is meant to be simple for simple cases.

If the many many many additional possibilites of formatting are required, you can use the limited HTML subset for this (eg, with an <ol>)
