Dear Doxygen,

for the file header description I use different special tags like:

  • \author
  • \version

And for the use with cvs:

  • $Date: current date$
  • $Revision: current version$

CVS automatically fill these fields with the current data (Date and Version).

Doxygen highlight these tags and removes the "$" and the colon sign and
automatically display "Revision" and "Date" bold in the same way like
the \author tag. But why it removes the colon?
For \author a colon is automatically added.
This is irregular.

best regards,
Julika Burger

That's indeed a bit inconsistent. I'll correct it in the next subversion update.
