Dynamic attribute assignments


As a shorthand, it is possible to move an assignment from the <Behaviour> code insert to the WOM element whose attribute it updates. The element

<Text output value::input~value>
means the same as
<Text output>
<Behaviour rexx>
{ $output~setValue( $input~getValue ) }
Dynamic attribute assignments do not require the $ marking an instance, or the get part of the method name.
