This CmdlElement allows simple marking or highlighting of certain words or passages of text.
Two slightly different versions of this command are available:
- The short form of this command allows highlights in six common colors, which are optimized for readability.
- In the long form of this command, each of the 16 millions of colors can be chosen for the background of the highlighted words.
can be created either in the short form with:
- This Word is important.
or in the long form with:
: This [[red]Word] is important.
: This [[mark][color=#FFAABB]Word] is important.
The short form requires only a colorname to be specified. Valid colornames are: "red", "green", "blue", "yellow", "pink" and "orange"; e.g. [red]
For the long form:
Note: When in the long version the color is specified with a color-name rather than a color-code, the resulting color is NOT identical the one from the short form of the command (using the same color-name)! (e.g. [[red]Word] is not the same as [[mark][color=red]Word])
- color: The color-code or a color-name has to be specified (default: #AACCFF); e.g. [color=#FFAABB].
(see also: HtmlColorCodes, CdmlColorNames)
The following example:
is created from:
- This text is highlighted in red, green, blue, yellow, pink and orange.
: This text is highlighted in [[red]red], [[green]green],
[[blue]blue], [[yellow]yellow], [[pink]pink] and
is created from:
- The six colors shown in the previous paragraph can be created very easily, but generally highlighting is possible in each required color.
: The six colors shown in the previous paragraph can be created
very easily, but generally [[mark][color=#ffcc33]highlighting]
is [[mark][color=#dddddd]possible] in [[mark][color=#88dddd]
each required color].
And, finally, the line:
- This Word has not the same color as this Word
: This [[red]Word] has not the same color as this [[mark][color=red]Word]
