     6An 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.
     8InterWiki prefixes can even be used to introduce links to new protocols, such as `tsvn:` used by [trac:TortoiseSvn TortoiseSvn].

    12 At the extreme, InterWiki prefixes can even be used to simply introduce
    13 links to new protocols, such as `tsvn:` used by 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.
     16The link is composed by the targeted Wiki (or system) name, followed by a colon, eg `MeatBall:`, followed by a page specification in the target.
    2417Note that, as for InterTrac prefixes, '''InterWiki prefixes are case insensitive'''.
    2518
    26 The target Wiki URL is looked up in the InterMapTxt wiki page,
    27 modelled after MeatBall:InterMapTxt.
     19The target Wiki URL is looked up in the [TracIni#interwiki-section "[interwiki]"] section of TracIni and 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.

    29 In addition to traditional InterWiki links, where the target
    30 is simply ''appended'' to the URL,
    31 Trac supports parametric InterWiki URLs:
    32 identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL
    33 will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
    34 The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier
    35 using the ":" separator.
     21In addition to traditional !InterWiki links, where the target is simply ''appended'' to the URL, Trac supports parametric !InterWiki URLs:
     22identifiers `$1`, `$2`, ... in the URL will be replaced by corresponding arguments.
     23The argument list is formed by splitting the page identifier using the ":" separator.

    39 If the following is an excerpt of the InterMapTxt page:
     27Every 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.
