Snowman supports a HTML shorthand for quickly creating elements with different properties. This shorthand is broken into two parts: prefixes and suffixes:
After the name of the element, two different symbols can be used.
0: Sets the
-: Sets the
An empty link:
<a0>This will be empty!</a>
A hidden DIV:
<div->Empty link and hidden</div>
After the name of the element and any prefixes are two other groups: ID and any classes. To set the ID of an element, its name must start with the hash (#) and run to the end of the opening tag or until a class name is encountered. A class name starts with a period (.) and is either after any ID or the name of an element.
#id: Sets the ID of the element
.class: Sets the class. Can be used multiple times for additional classes.
A DIV with the ID of "banner".
<div#banner>This is a banner!</div>
A SPAN with multiple classes.
<span.large.green>This is large and green</span>
