just like [TABLE-OF-CONTENTS] inserts the table of contents, are there other variables which will be translated on export? For instance [EXPORT-DATE] to get the export date, [VERSION] for the Org version, [FILE-NAME] for this
file's name, …
If you make me a complete list of what you'd like to have, I
can add them to the macros.

I actually only miss the export date, but after seeing for instance what txt2tags (another markup syntax) provides, I think this will cover most needs:

- export date (that is, current date). So that you can say „Page updated on 22/4/2009“. txt2tags for instance has %%date and % %date(format-string), as in %%date(%d-%m-%Y)


- file modification time; useful for instance if you export *all* pages frequently (then the export date would be the same for all even for unmodified pages)


- input file name; useful to say „See the Org source for this page: blabla.org“. It can also have a format string to select whether you want the extension, the full path, etc.


- output file name; only to say „This is page blabla.html“.

I did not do this one.

- table of contents

as before, [TABLE-OF-CONTENTS]

I don't want to add more [NAME],
I don't think it is "strange" enough.

Better use longer words like [EXPORT-FILE-NAME], or more Org-like syntax.

 Is there other metainformation that people need at export time?
 Org version? User name? File attributes?
