Hi Russel,

you can now write {{{TITLE}}} and {{{EMAIL}}} etc to get these interpolated.
More generally, you can write

#+MACRO: name value of the macro

and then write {{{name}}} to get the value interpolated.

I'm also trying to resolve an ordering issue. I want to have a
header/footer line declared in the header, but I want to use these
orgTITLE macros in that. Currently LATEX_HEADER and the class go first
before the definitions, and TEXT occurs inside the document. If the
macro isn't defined before the header/footer, you get an error.

I may have to manually code those, which defeats the purpose of using
the org options.

I think I got it! The issue here is that we're trying to define a
_Latex_ macro with the export options, and THAT is where the
resolution order becomes an issue.

Could we create some org-export macros that will be translated inline?
That way the header data would be replaced in the body of all export
types (ascii, html, & latex)? No more need to define latex macros.

------- Example ------------

#+TITLE: This is a title
Welcome to %%orgTITLE%%.

after export:

Welcome to This is a title.


This resolves the ordering issue and lets the metadata be used in the
document, which is the original purpose.

The syntax would require some consideration, but anything fairly
obtuse that wouldn't be confused for a code sample would work. I like
"closing" formats and would prefer multiple symbols be involved to
minimize the chance of a collision. We'd likely need a OPTION for
whether or not to honor these.

Suggested formats:

- %%orgVAR%%
- (-:orgVAR:-) (credit to johnw for "Entranced by Smileys Format")
- !~orgVAR~!

I need to learn lisp so I can start helping with these. :P
