1276Re: [jasspa] quotes and fence matching
- Nov 4, 2004Well for a quick fix, I would make dmf.emf take a variable to determine
which fences to match, instead of having them hardcoded. I would then
simply remove the apostrophe from the list (in mytxt.emf), for text
files. And add brockets ('<' and '>') for HTML files. Etc. This seems
like a five minute hack, if you know where to create the system variable
(which I don't). (An open question is where goto-matching-fence gets
its fence list from.)
