The spre (SuperPre) is a syntax plugin for the text that contains several programing language.  The text can be converted to HTML.  This is useful for writing programming notes or creating web pages.

spre syntax is like a C macro.  Example to make HTML:
" You can use Vim script as embedded macro.
return "<h1>Example to make HTML</h1>"

## comment is removed from result.

#pre c {"colorscheme":"evening"}
/* This section will be <pre class="c">...</pre> */
int func(int n) {
  return func(n);

let s:attr = {}
let s:attr.colorscheme = "desert"
let s:attr.tag = "div"
let s:attr.class = "c main"
let s:attr.modeline = "list number"
#pre c s:attr
/* This section will be <div class="c main">...</div> */
int main(int argc, char **argv) {
  return 0;

return readfile(expand("%:p:h") . "/footer.txt")

If you want to highlight HTML tag outside of spre macro:
  :set ft=html.spre
Spre will work as additional syntax.
