in reply to better wiki-like shortcuts.

Maybe I'm just an old-timer, but I actually like using plain HTML markup for posting here. To me, it's simpler than having to learn another set of rules for each site. (I don't post to a lot of other sites, and I admit I find it difficult to remember which one uses what.)

The square bracket notation is very handy, but those create links, not formatting changes, so I don't have a problem with those -- they're orthogonal to markup, so to speak.

Not that I have a problem with your suggestion; I'm just stating my preferences.

    Can't we make it configurable on a per user basis, and or with an option group in the post /forms?/? I think these three options should satisfy 95 of all users: PMS (Permonks Style, not Premenstrual Syndrom ;-), BBCODE and POD. To integrate those two should not be too hard since they both can be translated into html.
