     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.

    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].

    21 The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name,
    22 followed by a colon (e.g. `MeatBall:`),
    23 followed by a page specification in the target.
     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.
    2416Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, '''InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive'''.
    2517
    2618The 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.
    2719
    28 In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target
    29 is simply ''appended'' to the URL,
    30 Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs:
    31 identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL
    32 will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
    33 The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier
    34 using the ":" separator.

    3726Every 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.
