I've amended the page to that effect and it seems to work in Tails, but
not in AUMP nor Operator (though I now seem to recall that
include-pattern will be implemented in a future version of Operator - is
However, there's an issue, in that any styles applied, intentionally, to
class="X" inside a uF will now also be applied to the element thus
classed, elsewhere on the page (most of the H2, on this page, is now
That's not a problem in this case, but may effect others.
Also, is there a way to concatenate values. For instance on that page, I
<span id="summaryB" class="summary">Kidderminster Branch Indoor
in the H2 with, say:
<span id="summaryA>Janaury </span>
or the equivalent in the TH for each meeting, thuis:
<object data="#summaryA+#sumamryB" class="include"
<span class="include" style="display:none;"> 
</object><object <!-- Can't have white space ?-->
to give summaries of:
January Kidderminster Branch Indoor Meeting
February Kidderminster Branch Indoor Meeting
and so on, thus ensuring their uniqueness.
Or perhaps something similar with the name of the speaker at each event:
Gerry Griffiths: Kidderminster Branch Indoor Meeting
Graham Harrison: Kidderminster Branch Indoor Meeting
(If not, I'll add that to the wiki as a proposal)
 I'm assuming it's OK to use display:none for receptive use of text
which appears elsewhere on the page, as in this case.
