Is the {macro macroname} implemented in encoded text? If so, what is the proper syntax to call it.

I'm trying to use the {macro macroname} to include custom bullet points in some description texts.

This might help you... From the A-Kit wiki:
{macro name} Looks for the macro with the unique id given by name and processes the contents of that macro as if it were found in the text instead. This means that macros MAY include encoded text that will be properly processed when the macro is evaluated.

Ok, but is this a <scriptmacro> or something else. I've tried this:

.def file
result="{meta bmpfull}{bmp ico-cross} "/>

.dat file
description="{macro bCross} Agility is a mixture....">
<fieldval field="trtAbbrev" value="AGI"/>
<tag group="explicit" tag="2"/>
<tag group="HeroType" tag="PC"/>
<tag group="Helper" tag="StartValue6"/>

and receive this:
The following undefined macros...<remainder of error message in unused dialog>

Macro: bCross
