Note boxes with icons


This macro will render an HTML div-container in its own color and its own icon. The following containers are supported:

[[NoteBox(warn, my Text)]]
will render a red div-container with the given Text and a stopsign-image
[[NoteBox(tip, my Text)]]
will render a green div-container with the given Text and a lightbulb-image
[[NoteBox(note, my Text)]]
will render a blue div-container with the given Text and a notepaper-image

It will look like this:

The parse_args function from the Trac API is used to parse the input, therefore commas must be escaped with a backslash (\). That is, the following replacement must be made: , -> \,. Everything in the second argument is interpreted as wiki markup, however, a second macro cannot be embedded within the macro.
