Added syntax highlighting.

Note boxes with icons


The NoteBox macro will render an HTML-DivContainer in different colors with different Icons. The following containers are possible:

  • [[NoteBox(warn, my Text)]]
    • will render a red div-container with the given Text and a stopsign-image
  • [[NoteBox(tip, my Text)]]
    • will render a green div-container with the given Text and a lightbulb-image
  • [[NoteBox(note, my Text)]]
    • will render a blue div-container with the given Text and a notepaper-image

It will look like this:

The parse_args function from the Trac API is used to parse the input, therefore commas must be escaped with a backslash. That is, make the following replacement: , -> \,. Everything in the second argument is interpreted as wiki markup, however a second macro cannot be embedded within the macro.
