^children^

Tells Tinderbox to include the immediate children of the current note (or agent) in the current web page using their default template file.

^children( template )^

Tells Tinderbox to include the descendants of the current note (or agent) in the current Web page using the specified template file.

^children( template,N )^

Tells Tinderbox to include only the first N immediate children of the current note (or agent) with the specified template file. If N is used without a template, a comma must be placed before N.

This replaces the now deprecated ^justChildren( template )^. The original ^children^ function was replaced by ^descendants^.

^children^ evaluates its template argument, allowing agents and containers to use expressions like

^children(^value($MyTemplate)^)^

The HTMLDontExport settings of children are respected.
