Song mark up in SundayWorship

In version 1.2 of SundayWorship we have introduced the ability to add tags to parts of songs so that they can be reused. Tags take the form of a text inside a pair of angle brackets, for example <chorus>, on a line by itself. For example,

Blessèd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

<chorus>
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

<chorus>

Here the second part of the song has had the <chorus> tag added to it. Now every time SundayWorship sees the same tag with blank line either side of it, as in the example, the lines after the tag will be shown instead of the the tag. This song would be displayed as

Blessèd assurance, Jesus is mine!
O what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long;
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior, all the day long.

Notice that tags are not displayed when the song is displayed.

A tag can be redefined by adding it before another part of the song. Subsequent uses of the tag by itself use the latest value assigned to it

    Is there a reference of these tags somewhere? What other tags are there?

    How about tagging a song for searching, by theme, topic, etc? I love the way you can now search the contents of the songs though!

    Forget my last comment, I found how you can define the tags.
