Page directives

See Page directives

(:redirect PageName:)
(:nl:) insert newline in the *markup* only if one isn't present. The purpose of (:nl:) is to be able to write things like:
(:include Page1:)(:nl:)(:include Page2:)
which guarantees that the first line of Page2 is treated as a separate line from the last line of Page1, but without inadvertently generating a blank line between them.


See Page directives Group headers

(:noheader:), (:nofooter:)
(:noleft:), (:noright:)
(:nogroupheader:), (:nogroupfooter:)
