Let me know if you have any questions.

the markup:

 SomeGroup.PageName, after stripping off any initial markup characters 
like *,#,!,:

Ouch... you don't seem to have any line breaks, that's why the quote of 
your message looks so ugly.

eek! is this any better?

Adding the script for this to the cookbook sounds good. But although 
'para' is nice and short, it's a bit non-descriptive. This is about 
'including' parts of another page, 'include' should be in there. What do 
you think of these suggestions?



How about [[includepara:SomeGroup.PageName#anchor]]

I chose para /because/ it's nice and short, 
and it borrows the DocBook 'para' element name.

But we could do:

  $DoubleBrackets("/\\[\\[(include)?para: ...

which allows both variants. 

Although I think variants may be a result of not choosing good markup
and are harder to remember ;-)
