  The Doxia <Core> includes macro mechanisms to facilitate the documentation writing.
 
-*Echo Macro
+ Macros are best tested and supported for the standard Maven input formats APT and Xdoc,
+ they are also supported by Docbook, FML and XHTML input formats.
+ Macros are not currently supported by Confluence and Twiki modules.
+
+ A macro in an APT source file is a <<non-indented>> line that looks like this:
+
+-----
+%{macro_name|param1=value1|param2=value2|...}
+-----
+
+ An Xdoc macro has the following syntax:
+
+-----
+<macro name="macro_name">
+  <param name="param1" value="value1"/>
+  <param name="param2" value="value2"/>
+  ...
+</macro>
+-----
+
+ As of Doxia-1.0-beta-1, the following macros are available:
+
+ * {{{Echo_Macro} Echo Macro}}: print out parameters
+
+ * {{{Snippet_Macro} Snippet Macro}}: include (parts of) external files
+
+ * {{{TOC_Macro} TOC Macro}}: print a Table of Contents
+
+ * {{{SWF_Macro} SWF Macro}}: print Shockwave Flash assets

- If you need to include only a part of a file, you could add start and end snippets.
+ The <<<id>>> parameter is not required if you want to include the entire
file.
+ If you want to include only a part of a file, you should add start and end demarcators:
+ any line (typically a comment) that contains the strings "<<<START>>>",
"<<<SNIPPET>>>"
+ and "<<<myid>>>" (where <<<myid>>> is the <<<id>>>
of the snippet) is a start demarcator,
+ and similarly "<<<END SNIPPET myid>>>" denotes the end of the snippet
to include. For example:
 
   * Start and end snippets in a Java file
