Here’s one small detail that Tinderbox happens to get right!
As you know, Tinderbox lets you type [[ziplinks]] in square brackets as a fast way to make links. Today, I was working on a new chunk of writing, in which I’m (for now) storing references in old ACM format, for example [Bernstein 98]. This is a nice format for early drafts because it maximizes my chance of recognizing what I’ve cited without having to look it up!
So, I found myself needed to ascribe a quotation to an early paper by Doug Engelbart. I said to myself, “wouldn’t it be nice if I could type [[[Engelbart 63]]] and get [Engelbart 63]?
So I tried it — and it worked!
