Another experiment and proof of concept :)
If paragraph begins with special character set, add special styling or formatting.

They are:
:: FOLD :: enclose text in <details><summary> tags;
:: NOTE ::, :: TIP ::, :: IMPORTANT ::, :: CAUTION ::, :: WARNING :: add special styling.

Known implementations

Known limitations

  • no new lines, i.e. 1 or more blank line(s)
  • no nested blocks?

Other thoughts

Not sure about names, and syntax, could be:

  • different name, e.g. SPOILER, COLLAPSIBLE
  • different syntax, e.g. [NOTE], %NOTE%, [!NOTE]
  • lowercase vs. uppercase vs. case-insensitive
  • allow any names (alpha-num) to style paragraphs, just add built-in classes for known keywords

gitlab-collapsible ... no nested blocks?

You can get that effect... here... by wrapping the whole thing in

a <details> ... </details> element

like the one wrapping this section. The above code block is only to demonstrate that this approach supports nested blocks.


and here's a nested... details element
