     5An InterWiki link can be used for referring to a Wiki page located in another Wiki system, and by extension, to any object located in any other Web application, provided a simple URL mapping can be done.

    7 An InterWiki link can be used for referring to a Wiki page
    8 located in another Wiki system, and by extension, to any object
    9 located in any other Web application, provided a simple URL
    10 mapping can be done.
     7At the extreme, InterWiki prefixes can even be used to simply introduce links to new protocols, such as `tsvn:` used by [trac:TortoiseSvn TortoiseSvn].

    18 The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name,
    19 followed by a column (e.g. {{{MeatBall:}}}),
    20 followed by a page specification in the target.
    21 Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive.
     15The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name, followed by a colon, eg `MeatBall:`, followed by a page specification in the target.
     16Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, '''InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive'''.
    2217
    23 The target Wiki URL is looked up in a the InterMapTxt wiki page,
    24 modelled after
    25 [http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?InterMapTxt MeatBall:InterMapTxt].
     18The target Wiki URL is looked up in the `[interwiki]` section of TracIni or in the InterMapTxt wiki page, modeled after MeatBall:InterMapTxt. If a prefix is defined in both the `[interwiki]` section and InterMapTxt, the `[interwiki]` section takes precedence.
    2619
    27 In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target
    28 is simply ''appended'' to the URL,
    29 Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs:
    30 identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL
    31 will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
    32 The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier
    33 using the ":" separator.
     20In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target is simply ''appended'' to the URL, Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs:
     21identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
     22The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier using the ":" separator.

    35 == Examples ==
     24=== [interwiki]
     25
     26Every option in the `[interwiki]` section in TracIni defines one InterWiki prefix. The option name defines the prefix. The option value defines the URL, optionally followed by a description separated from the URL by whitespace. Parametric URLs are supported as well.
