Document titles


#43

I see. Just noticed that thread about it Description List

Well lets just stick to only this form then, for lazy meta data description. I have not seen many objection to this form. Just don’t stack it. It’s in YAML.

| !CommonMark: 0.1.23-github.username.projectname
| title: Title for the top bar of any browser
| layout: report

#44

I would probably still use the Jekyll style front matter as it does not require the writer to add | at the start of every line. It’s also consistent with how code blocks are written. No strong objection to including both though.


#45

Actually, there is an objection. Pandoc uses a pipe at the start of a line to represent a line block. I think this is the equivalent of the <pre> tag in HTML. It looks like a useful extension to have.

Perhaps something similar to Pandoc metadata blocks could be supported instead, e.g.

% title: Title for the top bar of any browser
% layout: report

#46

% seems not used for other purposes in the usual suspects so might be good together with the Jekyll/Hyde/Flask-FlatPages/nanoc syntax.
