If you wrote a simple parameterized snippet (you'd need that extension too), you could easily set things up so that you have:

<r:snippet name="amazon" id="123456789"> Some Cool book </r:snippet>

its not exactly what you want but it would be > 80% of the way there!

Another Blog related question.

I'm using KDE/Linux.  The browser, Konqueror, has 'shorthand' or
'abbreviations', such as 'cpan', 'jeeves', 'google', 'ggmovie', 'wp'
(for wikipedia).

It occurs to me that I'm making a lot of references to Amazon in my
blog. It would be nice to be able to write "<amazon:9620102>" and have
a reference to that isbn or product id.  Even better if it also has my
Associates ID in there as well :-)

There's something like  this on Rory Hansen's site
http://www.roryhansen.ca/category/ruby-on-rails/

:-( Shame I'm not a programmer :-(

The Amazon example is clearly useful. I can think of a couple of others
that are marginal like YouTube and Twitter and Flickr.   Perhaps  a
'configurable' "url-abbreviation-expander" is the right idea, like in
Konqueror.
