HTML Entities

Some source text entities/characters are automatically translated to HTML entities without needing to resort to use of the $HTMLEntities attribute:

Characters already already entered in the text as HTML entities are detected and exported as expected.

Tinderbox recognises macros embedded in text. If a paragraph contains only a macro, Tinderbox does not add paragraph mark-up to that paragraph — it assumes that the macro will do this. If you want Tinderbox to add paragraph mark-up, just add some space characters before or after the macro.

Tinderbox recognises any paragraph that contains only export template expressions (notably ^include(…)^ and ^children(…)^ ). Tinderbox won't add paragraph mark-up to the result of these expressions. Again, adding space characters before or after the mark-up will cause Tinderbox to add paragraph mark-up. If an export code is on a line of its own before the end of the note, do ensure you add closing ^ or the output HTML may not be as you suspect.

Tinderbox ships with the specimen templates stored internally within the application package. This means you can immediately access a few basic templates in a new TBX without having to manually set up a template folder as in the past. Of course, if you wish to use your own templates you will still need to set the template folder location manual before use.
