      Hi, thanks for the reply. It did answer my question, but on second
      thoughts, I would actually like to use the line number and column
      number corresponding to each mark inside the ':match' command. So my
      question is, given a mark (say `a, '<, etc), is it possible to get its
      line number and column number? I have to do this because the marks I
      use to define a match earlier might get redefined, in which case those
      highlights will be gone.
