Meta-text

Meta-text is plain text that assigns context to text based on short, character identifiers.

Meta-identifiers:

   Description              Example                  General
   -----------              -------                  -------

:: context

A meta-string is a meta-identifier followed immediately by a word. The only exception is -[mtw].

Any meta-string except #word and [link can be immediately followed by #name to assign a name/tag to the string.

Relative Locations
