I'm actually looking to create my own markup language, after a look to
the greats markdown and textilize markup languages they seem to be more
complexes that what I need, so not feating with my application.

Any help is welcome ;-)

Creating your own markup language is a worthy endeavor, but I wonder
if it may be better to use textilize and simply limit the recognized
vernacular
to just the options that suit you. If you take a look at the
documentation
to Textile,
you'll see that you can turn all kinds of rulesets on and off.

What are your needs? Just that people can bold. italicize, and maybe
make
lists and headings?
Pretty easy to do, and a great way to ensure that a future developer on
your
project is familiar
with the markup methods..

Well, yes. But surely we can allow this sort of thing. A rails
developer should be able to ask for help on all their web-dev problems
in one place, imo.

I agree on both points, this first comment will really help me and make
me
discovering new possibilities. But in an other side I'm really curious
to know
how to create my own markup, that's meanly based on curiosity now, but I
guess
this push almost all of us here.

Yes, I'm totally agree but it's better to separate the different
subjects,
isn`t?. Because I read lots of mails everyday and I'd like to know which
I'm
interested and which I'm not.

bye!

So in fact do anybody have the answer to this famous question :

How to create your own markup language ?

I do realize for my own that redcloth will not offer what I'm looking
for (at
least I don't think so) so I'm gona need to build my own markup language
and
will like to know if some good classes, helpers, ... already exsits for
it.

I think you could  use  the Scite library (it's a DLL). of course, if
you're
going to build your own markup language I suppose you should know the
formal
grammar theory which it's learnt in Compiladores (TALF) or you know a
lot of
regular expressions.

good luck!
