By "using org-special-blocks.el as a module", if you mean "having a line such

    (add-to-list 'org-modules 'org-special-blocks)

I did not have one either.

I just had:

    (require 'org-special-blocks)

But, IIUC, that's more or less equivalent:

- being in `org-modules' means that the package will be required[1] many times
  before trying to do different operations (such as inserting a link, etc.),

  and that there is a protection mechanism in case the package can't be loaded

- being explicitly required in my .emacs does only try to load it once.

Apart from that, I don't see differences.

Well against exporting HTML. But I did not realize that I was more or less the
only one in the world ;-) to load `org-special-blocks'[2] while exporting to HTML.

This must explain that. Case is closed.

Best regards,


[1] Though, really only loaded once.

[2] And I must admit I maybe have used it once or twice, not more... Though, I
still find it an interesting feature.
