Indicates that any valid HTML mark-up in the source text of the of the current note will be rendered as text (i.e. exported as HTML entities) instead of as HTML code.

$HTML can be set via the Export Inspector's ▸ Export tab,

For 'HTML mark-up' you can read any code using mark-up tag's written within in <> angle brackets, e.g. XML, PHP, etc. Thus, a true setting exports a '<br>' in the source text as '&lt;br&gt;' that shows as screen text whereas a false setting exports it as '<br>', i.e. a HTML source code for a (visible) line break.

Values exported via ^value()^ and such will be parsed for HTML entities in addition to note text.

When set to true, where sections of mark-up include line breaks in the Tinderbox note, it does not output the line returns after each line of code, i.e. they form continuous text in the HTML output, unless the there is at least one character at the beginning or end of the line outside the code within the outermost < > characters.

For formatting discrete paragraphs/blocks of code, see the note on Exporting code samples.
