4.9 Macro Names

Names are used to identify macros and sections. A name consists of a sequence of from zero to 80 printable characters, including the blank character. End of line characters are not permitted in names. Names are case sensitive; two different macros are permitted to have names that differ in case only. Like free text, names are typeset by FunnelWeb and are safe from misinterpretation by the target typesetter. For example, it is quite acceptable to use the macro name @<\medskip@> even if the target typesetter is TeX.

name      = "@<" name_text "@>"
name_text = { ordinary_char | text_special }
