General syntax rules

General syntax rules

Following are general syntax rules:

  • Wherever a space appears, you can substitute any amount of white space (spaces, tabs, line breaks). The white space is mandatory except at the very beginning or end of a comment.
  • Attributes can be given in any order. For example, in a TemplateParam, you can specify the type before the name.
  • Comment and attribute names are case sensitive.
  • All attributes must be in quotation marks. Single or double quotes can be used.

For information about checking your syntax, see Checking template syntax.
