[pmwiki-users] adding a class to a form

No, not simply for any attribute and any tag. The (:div:) and (:table:)  
markups allow inserting any attributes except onclick and similar.

Other tags are processed differently. While there may be a way to define  
and set additional attributes, this in no way would be simple and/or  

OTOH some of these frameworks don't have hard-coded reqirements for  
attributes. It should be possible to configure them to select tags with a  
certain class instead of tags with a certain data-* attribute (easier than  
introducing more complexity in pmwiki markup).

Even if it is hardcoded, as you use jQuery, you can write a simple function  
that would find these tags based on their class or parent class, and insert  
the required attributes in them: $('h4.page').data('role', 'page'); will  
insert the data-role="page" attribute in all H4 headings with the class  
"page". In wiki markup this is done by

  !!!! Heading  %block page%

This may be a fun learning exercice to which some time could be devoted. :-)
