What is a WikiName ?

since 1.3

Note: As of 1.3, page names are no longer required to be in WikiName format. Any printable character (including Unicode characters) is permitted other than the following:
 [ ] { } % + | ? = < > ' " / 0x00-0x1f 0x7f ,

Please note that spaces are converted internally to the _ character, but will display as spaces.

A WikiName - often called a CamelCase word - is a string composed by two or more capitalized words joined together without spaces, like ThisIsANewPage.
WikiNames are easy to read, write and remember, and distinctive enough to be recognized by a wiki engine as HyperLinks.

To be a valid wikiname, doesn't Ted22 need a second uppercase character?

In definition, yes. However, the regexp that's used to parse CamelCase accepts a digit in place of the second uppercase letter as a valid match.
