Sorry beeing unspezific, I used your ptvdefinition and markup to build 
the hidden section one. The markup for make it invisible works. But the 
PageTextVarPatterns seems not to be recognized. Testwise I modified 
fox.php for the new ptvfmt. So my question should be:
* Can I do it without modifing fox.php.
* what is wrong with the $PageTextVarPatterns, it don't get recoginzed

fox.php 1220:
    case 'hiddensection' :   //add as hidden anchor section
        $text = $text."\n[[!#".$key."]]\n$val\n[[!#".$key."end]]\n"; break;

hides the section:
    Markup('hiddensection::', '<split',
        '/\\[\\[!#[\\d\\w]+\\]\\].*\\[\\[!#[\\d\\w]+end\\]\\]/s', '');

should make a ptv (but seams not to work)
    $PageTextVarPatterns['hiddensection'] =

Yes, and this is very close to smilies code. I accidently did this 
allready. The reason way I would like a "hidden section" with the markup 
above is that I use it for the main content of all wikipages. So I would 
like tho minimize the risk of accidently breaking the markup. And the 
section markup [[#Text]]XXX[[#Textend]] seams more robust than (::ptv: 
::). To make use of templates I need it invisible.
