    45Wiki markup is a core feature in Trac, tightly integrating all the other parts of Trac into a flexible and powerful whole.

    6 Trac has a built in small and powerful wiki rendering engine. This wiki engine implements an ever growing subset of the commands from other popular Wikis,
    7 especially [http://moinmo.in/ MoinMoin] and [trac:WikiCreole].

    15  - TracLinks covers all the possible ways to refer precisely to any Trac resource or parts thereof,
    16  - WikiPageNames talks about the various names a wiki page can take, CamelCase or not
    17  - WikiMacros lists the macros available for generating dynamic content,

    456450Note that this kind of block is also used for selecting lines that should be processed through WikiProcessors.

    645 '''Note''': the [trac:WikiCreole] style for links is quick to type and
    646 certainly looks familiar as it's the one used on Wikipedia and in many
    647 other wikis. Unfortunately it conflicts with the syntax for [#Macros macros].
    648 So in the rare case when you need to refer to a page which is named after
    649 a macro (typical examples being TitleIndex, InterTrac and InterWiki),
    650 by writing `[[TitleIndex]]` you will actually call the macro instead of linking
    651 to the page.

    686673An anchor, or more correctly speaking, an [http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/struct/links.html#h-12.2.1 anchor name] can be added explicitly at any place in the Wiki page, in order to uniquely identify a position in the document:
     
    725712
    726713For more complex anchors (e.g. when a custom title is wanted), one can use the Span macro, e.g. `[[span(id=point2, class=wikianchor, title=Point 2, ^(2)^)]]`.
