 +When using the hyphen (''​-''​) modifier separator, only one format modifier may be used per @-code instance ​(you cannot combine format modifiers) and @-code arguments (separated from the code with a colon) are **not** supported).

 +When using the pipe (''​|''​) modifier separator, some modifiers may be combined with others (e.g. ''​|TR''​) and @-code arguments (separated from the code with a colon) **are** supported.
