    # Currently hdf is set only when the macro is called
    # From a wiki page

    # then, as `txt` comes from the user, it's important to guard against

    return 'Hello World, args = ' + escape(args)

    Note that the name of the class is meaningful:
     - it must end with "Macro"

    The documentation of the class (i.e. what you're reading)
    will become the documentation of the macro, as shown by
    the !MacroList macro (usually used in the TracWikiMacros page).
