Creole is designed to be a common wiki markup language which augments existing markup to enable wiki users to transfer content seamlessly across wikis. The name Creole was born from an idea of wiki founder Ward Cunningham. The goal: create a common markup that was not a standardization of an arbitrary existing markup, but rather a new markup language that was created out of the common elements of all existing engines. As every wiki software has its own markup definitions, the differences can make them difficult for novices to learn and hard for experts to remember, thus a common wiki markup lays the foundation for development of cross-engine wiki software."
