Problem being, that if I had a line like;
and I wanted to change that indexterm tag, I would delete it & type in
the macro (",index" at the moment).
this will give;
<indexterm <primary>Patches</primary><secondary>settings</secondary></indexterm> id="i-5947-3b12-1012825371">
Which a "J" won't help. I need to be able to read in between the ",index"
and the "<primary>". Just seems to be a major shortcoming in Vim.
