Stored vs displayed values for list variables in email templates

Stored vs displayed values for list variables in email templates

The new email editor is introducing List variables that enable the designer to set a List of values to be chosen by the user creating an email. This is great but is still missing the possibility to display one thing and have the stored value to be more technical.

Typical usage for this would be to enable the user to change some CSS behavior on the fly. e.g.:

<meta class="mktoList" id="textFontFamily" mktoName="Main Text Font Family" values="Arial,Verdana,Times New Roman">

Would be used to change the fonts used in the whole email

But in, some cases, you will want to hide the complexity to the user. Therefore, it would be preferable to have the possibility to set

values="displayed value1|stored value1, displayed value2|stored value2, displayed value3|stored value3".

Ex:

values="Large|20px,medium|10px,small|5px".
