I guess that you could argue it to be "bad form" in some abstract
computer science sense, but it does happen to be how Eric wrote
NoteTab. Have a look at the Custom Functions page in Clip Help where
it is described as "an approach similar to the ^!Clip command".
As (the other) Bob found, trying to stick a ^!Clip command in front of
a custom function, such as ^$m2y()$, is redundant and the resulting
code just does not work.
You can call the clip m2y with ^!Clip m2y (which I infer to be your
preference) but lose the ability to pass a parameter, which was the
point of the whole exercise.
