Tokens are codes placed in a GridTemplate which are converted into date-related information when an output file is generated. Each token represents a specific way of looking at, and displaying, a date and the information that relates to that date.
As seen above:
•Tokens are enclosed in a pair of braces [ ].
•Any attributes applied to the token in the GridTemplate in QuarkXPress, will automatically be the attributes of the resulting output.
•The translation of tokens depending on the language used will be covered in the chapter on Languages and Translations.
The following topics will cover the various tokens and the information that they display.
