Wiki formatting character *_ and _*
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.
