Attribute references


#1

This idea combines the syntax of familiar elements – link references, footnotes, and attribute blocks.

Attribute reference label:

{^ref-label}

Attribute reference definition:

{^ref-label}: .class #id attribute="value"

When using an extension for this syntax, any element that could receive an attribute block could also receive an attribute reference.

For example, headings:

# Heading text     {^ref-label}
# Heading text #   {^ref-label}

Block elements:

{^ref-label}
Paragraph text
{^ref-label}
> Blockquote
{^ref-label}
- List
- List continued
  {^ref-label}
  - Sublist
  - Sublist continued

Inline elements:

*Emphasis*{^ref-label}
`code span`{^ref-label}
[Link](target){^ref-label}

Arbitrary content surrounded by brackets:

[Any text]{^ref-label}

And potentially other locations as well.
