An intermediate markup type is one that needs further processing to put it into final form. A good example of one is TOH
, which represents a link to a documentation node, together with the headline of that node, which may not have been created yet at the time the TOH
link is encountered. Another example is HREF
, which creates a link using the HTML <a>
element: when the link is created, the relative path to the target page depends on the path to the page incorporating the link.
