"if false" markup as described does not work in this block:

(:if false:) (:if ontrail {*$Group}.UserGuide#trailstart#trailend {*$Name}:) (:showright:) (:ifend:) (:ifend:) (:include MERTSPlus.GroupFooter#trailstart#trailend:)

I would only expect the include to be parsed...but the (:if ontrail) statement is also executed, and should be skipped entirely.

The (:if ontrail ...:) conditional will terminate the first (:if false:) conditional. What you're trying to do is nesting conditions; the following should work as expected in your case. —Eemeli Aro July 23, 2009, at 09:52 AM

(:if false:)
  (:if2 ontrail {*$Group}.UserGuide#trailstart#trailend {*$Name}:)
(:include MERTSPlus.GroupFooter#trailstart#trailend:)
