A more compact, string, alternative to $ID

From v9.5.0, IDString, provides a more compact alternative to $ID. It is also a String so is less liable to accidental mathematical transformation when used in expressions.

For example, a typical value of $ID might be1666143079, and its corresponding $IDString is tbx:BjT1Nn.

$IDString may be used interchangeably with $ID.
