Specifies the name of the note. The Name is equivalent to the ^title^ export code in the context of exporting data. The Name string can be one word or more and can include symbols etc. - though the latter aren't suggested for use if you're going to export to HTML as you may/will have issues to resolve with HTML entities in the output.
Because Tinderbox recognises operators such as + and -, notes whose names begin with characters other than letters and numbers may sometimes be interpreted in unexpected ways.
For example, if a note is named "6*7", rules like
might be parsed as a multiplication with the result of 42.
should have the expected effect.
The new attributes DisplayExpression and (read-only) DisplayName allow the user the option of showing the original name or as a manipulated version, e.g. with some information such as a word count concatenated on the end. Use of the new features is non-intrusive to existing use such as in actions & rules as Name always retains the name as before any expression is applied to it.
