Left-bound bidirectional hyperlink

prefix-junctor

Establish a bidirectional hyperlink, placing the link immediately before the source phrase.

Syntax

Prefix junctors begin with the two-character shorthand sequence tilde + less-than ~<.

The shorthand sequence must be followed by a target identifier which has been assigned to another phrase in the manuscript.

semantax ~<identifier Text of the phrase.
Prefix-junctor syntax

Junctors may only be used at the start of a phrase, immediately after the semantax, and before the text.

The BLUE-PROCESSOR matches the junctor's identifier with the target phrase, and creates hyperlinks between the two. In the case of a prefix-junctor, the hyperlink is placed in front of the source phrase, without any text. You must use CSS rules, targeting the selector a.prefix::before, to provide clickable text to the otherwise invisible hyperlink.

Examples

Here is what a prefix-junctor looks like within the body of a manuscript.

style {
a.prefix::before { content: " ♦ "; }
}

The ocean's rise will make <<i ~<map1 numerous highways>>
impassible during semi-diurnal tides.
...

...
figure {
figcaption ~map1 High Tides

}
