Problem

You want something like a macro or a user-defined parameterized variable.

Context

You want to write some TML which acts differently, based on how you use it.

Solution

TML INCLUDEs work quite nicely as macros. Basically, any named include argument (eg, foo="123") that doesn't match a predefined parameter can be used (eg, ...%foo%...) in the body of the include.

Here is some setup code:

%STARTSECTION{"bl_amz"}%
   * [[http://www.amazon.com/dp/%isbn%/?tag=assorted0a-20][%title%]];
     %author%; %imprint%
     %IF{ "defined notes" then="<p>%notes%" }%
%ENDSECTION{"bl_amz"}%

Here is the usage code:

%INCLUDE{"Projects/WebIncludes"  section="bl_amz"  imprint="Developer's Library"  isbn="067232685X"
  author="Chris Newman"
  title="SQLite"}%
