Yup. Or...

Um, what about starting with the obvious:

Change the MakeLink function as follows

else {
  if (is_null($txt)) {
  } else
    $txt = MarkupToHTML($txt);

Would that work? The following would cause problems:

[[a page | !link text with a WikiWord]]

How worried should one be about extreme cases?
