ChordPro-Markup

Within the custom markup - ||: text :|| - added by ChordPro, ChordPro directives, lyrics, and chords, are specified.

Lyrics and chords

Text represents lyrics, within which chords, signified by square brackets, viz "[C#m7]", are embedded. Unlike a wiki white space and end of lines are recognised and honoured.

ChordPro directives

ChordPro directives consist of keywords encapsulated in braces (curly brackets), viz "{keyword}". Directives are not case sensitive, must be one per line, other content on a directive line is ignored.
