Unique identifier


Use identifier shorthand notation to assign a unique identifier to a phrase for junctor targets, clone references and CSS selectors.


Identifier shorthand assigns an "id" attribute to a phrase. The syntax is a hashtag # immediately followed by an arbitrarily chosen name.

Each phrase may have only one identifier attribute.

Identifier shorthand notation

Shorthand attributes should be placed between a phrase's semantax and its textual composition. Shorthand attributes may optionally be preceded by one or more spaces. At least one space must be used after the last shorthand attribute, before the beginning of the textual composition.

A phrase may have any combination of shorthand attributes (#, ., *, ^, `, +, ? ) and they may specified in any order.
