Would you consider a style syntax for wiki formatting?

When creating a table, some style can be injected via <<color... bgcolor... etc. >>. I believe many of these are relatively new for tables as I don't remember seeing them a while back (Thanks, they are pretty awesome!).

What do you guys think about applying this to other wiki elements?

The trick is having a container for it to apply to, things like:

== <<color="blue">> Colored Header == (heading element)

''<<color="red">> This is important red text!'' (emphasize element)

<<color="green">> Potentially even paragraph elements could accept style and it would apply to a text block like this. By creating a line break it would make a new paragraph element escaping the style... (paragraph element)

so this would be back to normal.

Hi, Forrest!

Having the ability to do something like that is definitely on our radar! But I think we are planning on moving away from Wiki Syntax and have a WYSIWYG editor, instead, which will allow you to change the color of the text much more easily.

Also, (sorry this is a bit random) I would suggest setting a CSS max-width value on text box elements. Right now they can be dragged out in ways that mess up the design.
