DSL Tags

All DSL tags have the following format: [a] (opening tag) or [/a] (closing tag).

[b], [/b] – boldfaced font

[i], [/i] – italics

[u], [/u] – underlined font

[c], [/c] – coloured (highlighted) font

[*], [/*]  – the text between these tags is only displayed in full translation mode (see)

[m] – sets the left paragraph margin. N is the number of spaces which will be used for the left-hand margin. N must be within the range from 0 to 9. The corresponding closing tag of the paragraph is [/m]. and left card margin.

[trn], [/trn] – translations zone.

[ex], [/ex] – examples zone.

[com], [/com] – comments zone.

[s],[/s] – multimedia zone (used to add pictures or sound files into a dictionary entries ).

[url],[/url] – link to a Web page.

[!trs], [/!trs] – the text between these tags will not be indexed

[p], [/p] – labels (clicking a label displays its full text)

['],[/'] – a stressed vowel in a word. You can change the colour of  stressed vowels on the Entry window view tab of the Options dialog box (Tools>Options…).

[lang][/lang] – the language of the word or phrase; these tags are used in cards to mark words that are written in a language other than the target language. Words marked by [lang] tags will be indexed, translated, you will be able to see the list of their grammatical forms, etc. The name of the language must be enclosed in quotation marks, e.g. [lang name="Russian"]. See the list of supported DSL languages in the “Supported Languages” section.

[ref][/ref] – hyperlink to a card in the same dictionary (You can also use “<<” and “>>” to enclose the headword of the card to make a link).

Note. When using the [ref] and [/ref] tags, make sure that the card you refer to actually exists, as DSL Compiler will not automatically check the validity of such references.

[sub][/sub] – subscript

[sup][/sup] -  superscript

Note. DSL does not allow embedding formatting commands of the same type.
