The issue here is that we're trying to define a _Latex_ macro with the export options, and THAT is where the resolution order becomes an issue. Could we create some org-export macros that will be translated inline? That way the header data would be replaced in the body of all export types (ascii, html, & latex)? No more need to define latex macros. ------- Example ------------ #+TITLE: This is a title ... Welcome to %%orgTITLE%%. after export: Welcome to This is a title. ---------------------------- This resolves the ordering issue and lets the metadata be used in the document, which is the original purpose. The syntax would require some consideration, but anything fairly obtuse that wouldn't be confused for a code sample would work. I like "closing" formats and would prefer multiple symbols be involved to minimize the chance of a collision. We'd likely need a OPTION for whether or not to honor these. Suggested formats: - %%orgVAR%% - (-:orgVAR:-) (credit to johnw for "Entranced by Smileys Format") - !~orgVAR~! I need to learn lisp so I can start helping with these. :P Thanks. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Russell Adams RLAdams@AdamsInfoServ.com PGP Key ID: 0x1160DCB3 http://www.adamsinfoserv.com/ Fingerprint: 1723 D8CA 4280 1EC9 557F 66E8 1154 E018 1160 DCB3
