Description

The wiki formatter enforces a non-obvious dependency on strong '*' and emphasis '_' tags. Specifically, emphasis tag characters must be contained within strong tag characters. Thus This Text is Bold Italic; but This text has '' Italicized as Well* .

Making this worse is that Redmine 0.7, when importing from Trac (which uses various numbers of ' to accomplish the same thing), substitutes "_*text*_" for " '''''text''''' " when the equivalent in Redmine should be text. Lastly, Redmine does not properly parse text formatting that is enclosed in any adjacent characters without a whitespace separator: (This is Not Formatted) ( but this is ).

I suggest that the dependency be removed and that '_*x*_' display the same as '*_x_*'. I have mixed feelings about whether or not formatting tags should require whitespace separation from surrounding text.

Finally, I cannot get a preview of this submission, all I see is a frame with the word Preview in the upper left corner; much like a html fieldset legend with empty contents.

Actually, what the Trac import routine does is output this:

'''''text''''' becomes text

Let me try that again.

'''''text''''' becomes '_*text_*'

The parser also produces erroneous output when using parenthesis:
'_one_' and '_two_' becomes one and two as it is supposed to.
but when you parenthise 'one' and 'two', what happens is:
'_(one)_' and '_(two)_' becomes (one) and (two) which is obviously not what it should look like.
and this happens also for bold string: '*one*' and '*two*' becomes (one) and (two)
