# [tex-eplain] definexref and hanging indents

Wed Jan 2 11:58:53 CET 2008

I would like to define a cross reference that uses a lot of text in the value of the label and typeset as a hanging indent. My attempt below only works if another reference immediately follows, any space following the ref causes the hanging indent to fail. I would also like to remove the final s. Alternatively I could use refn instead  of refs but this makes the entire label a hyperlink and I want only the marker to be active.

Any ideas?

\input eplain

\beginpackages
\usepackage{color}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\endpackages

\hsize = 9cm

\def\sectionword{\hangindent=1em\hangafter=1\smallskip\noindent A lot of text here which requires a hanging indent, also how do I get rid of that extra s at the end?}
\definexref{myref}{[marker]}{section}

\refs{myref}
\refs{myref}

\definexref{anotherref}{\hangindent=1em\hangafter=1\smallskip\noindent A lot of text here which requires a hanging indent but I only want the marker to act as a hyperlink [marker]}{}

\refn{anotherref}
\refn{anotherref}

\bye
