Symbols available in the HTML source files
All symbols have to be present in the source files in the form --SYMBOLNAME:ARGUMENT--. A list of the symbols, each indicating its symbolname is given in the following. When an argument is required it is described at the particular symbol. Note that you may not omit the colon after the symbolname, even if no argument is required. Currently not more than one symbol per source file line is supported.
LINK: A link taken from the link file. A link name is given as argument.
SUBSTANCE: This symbol is used in the page template to include the source file of the page.
INCLUDE: Include an HTML source file. The argument specifies a filename relative to the src directory. Symbols within the included file are processed as usual.
NAVBAR: A navigation bar, providing next, previous and home links. The destination of the links is taken from the relative positions in the contents file, the home link points to the file specified in the brew.conf file as $homename.
