[pmwiki-users] Fixing the documentation

Hi, I brought this up previously, but can I get a final opinion on this 
so that we can fix the documentation once and for all:

- Basically what wiki words are "special" and exempt from the normal 
spacing rules? 
- So far I have "PmWiki" for certain
- Possibles (based on context) are: "PageList", "WikiStyle" and "WikiTrail"

Can we please agree to a (short) list and then have these added as the 
default exception list in the config file and then fix the documentation 
so that they are listed correctly?

The reason this matters is that I am using a different on disk pattern 
for filenames, and so while the default wiki doesn't care about the 
different between [[PmWiki Philosophy]] and [[PmWikiPhilosphy]], my 
system does and at present the docs are significantly broken because of 
the inconsistent use of both

I just started dipping in here and there on the main PmWiki site, but 
there are many inconsistencies and I would like to get a signoff on what 
is "correct" before I change things further?

eg just looking at http://pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/DocumentationIndex
* [[Pagelist Variables]]
* [[PageList Templates]]
 [[Wiki Wiki Web]]  - differs from the front page
* [[Change log]] - (should this be [[Changelog]]?)
* [[AuthUser]]  - should this be [[Auth User]]?
* [[PerGroup customizations]]
* [[Custom wiki styles]] - elsewhere "WikiStyles" is quite common, 
versus "Wiki Styles" here?
* [[PageDirectives]]
* [[InterMap]]

This is just that one page

Patrick - can you please give an official opinion on the exceptions and 
I will work through the docs and try to fix everything?  I recommend 
that these are then put in as the default "don't space" config param
