Ok...despite going through the mind-bending process of teaching myself how to create a custom character sheet, I have to admit I am still completely lost on one simple coding concept *hangs head in shame* Can someone please, please, tell me how to define an Attribute so that it can be used by tokens, macros, etc. I don't want to display it on the sheet!!!! I just want to define it!!!!   so that I can use it within the character sheet calculations....that's it... All I need is the code, and I am buggered if I can get it to work  :'( If someone can give me the syntax I would be eternally grateful...let's call the Attribute "Blah" just for the sake of simplicity.... Thanks in advance. Ray

The backslash isn't required(it might have been at one time to validate...) Many people include it on inputs.  I do as well since I've seen many examples that also include them.
It's a hold over from XHTML/XML that indicates a "self-closing" tag, i.e.,&nbsp; &lt;sometag /&gt; was equivalent to &lt;sometag&gt;&lt;/sometag&gt;.&nbsp; In HTML5, for void elements (elements that cannot have any content) like &lt;input&gt;, there's no such thing as end tag so real proper way to write it is &lt;input&gt; but the HTML5 specs allows for optional /.&nbsp; See item 6 under start tag :&nbsp; <a href="https://www.w3.org/TR/html5/syntax.html#start-tags" rel="nofollow">https://www.w3.org/TR/html5/syntax.html#start-tags</a> &nbsp;
