Wiki Name Encoding Is Unambiguous.

Context:

At the expense of 2-3 prefix characters, we can make the intended type of an IBIS node entirely unambiguous. This is very handy in setting up outlines, because the WikiName and simple indenting tell the whole story.

Use of prefixes to specify types is not a new idea. It is a fundamental part of the Perl language and is also used by convention in other programming circles. For example, Charles Simonyi's Hungarian Notation is used by many Microsoft Windows programmers.
