CriticMarkup CriticMarkup was designed to make plain text copyediting markup easy to write and easy to read. What follows is a short overview of the CriticMarkup syntax. If you’re looking for more detailed information on how CriticMarkup renders its syntax into pure HTML, see the spec page. The Basic Syntax There are five types of Critic marks: Addition {++ ++}Deletion {-- --}Substitution {~~ ~> ~~}Comment Highlight {== ==} We’ll go over each of these marks in turn. Additions You make a CriticMarkup addition by surrounding the new text with curly braces and double plus marks. Lorem ipsum dolor{++ sit++} amet… A space character and “sit” will be inserted at the position shown. Deletions Deletions use a similar syntax. Lorem{-- ipsum--} dolor sit amet… The word “ipsum” and a leading space character are marked for deletion in the above example. Substitutions Substitutions combine a deletion with an addition in one snippet, and are written as matched curly braces and double tildes. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet.
