    Nice plugin ! A bug I discovered, when using "Sp Vertical nav item" macro. Special caracters given for the name are converted in HTML code. Example : A tab with the name "Marketing & Sales" displays "Marketing & Sales". No problem with "SP tab Pane" macro.

    Looks awesome! Please consider adding the HTML attribute "data-aui-responsive" for tabs and maybe a checkbox to enable "data-aui-persist". It's already built into the AUI and if you are on a version of AUI that doesn't support it the attributes are just ignored. It would be nice to be able to specify the tab id (rather than having it programatically set) and set which is the active tab.

    Awesome plugin that completely replaces Navitabs (which are now paid). There're only two important differences to Navitabs - Spectrum Formatting Macros are free and better :-) I just hope that Spectrum Groupe won't backstab happy users like bitvoodoo and will not change it to paid one unexpectedly :-)
