Hi,

I'm looking for a (probably/hopefully) very simple extension. I started to use TiddlyWiki recently (http://www.donationc...ex.php?topic=28700.0) and like it quite a bit now. The one thing that I miss is that Firefox's text entry box (where I type right now for example) doesn't support highlighting of TiddlyWiki's hyperlinks, and it's easy to accidently type one, because they not only can have a [[hyperlink name 123]] format, but also CamelCase (which *can* be quite handy):

Quote
CamelCase

New words created by smashing together capitalized words.

CamelCase is the original wiki convention for creating hyperlinks, with the additional requirement that the capitals are followed by a lower-case letter; hence “AlabamA” and “ABc” will not be links. More information on CamelCase:

http://c2.com/cgi/wiki?WikiCase
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CamelCase

I forgot in which editor I saw such highlighting, but my guess is that doing some kind of highlighting/color coding with everything that's either [[hyperlink text xyz]] or CamelCase should be easy to do in a Firefox extension. Is it?

Gazillions of TiddlyWiki users will love you forever!  :D

I was told Greasemonkey might be a solution for this challenge, but I don't know my way around that either.  :-[
