Index : noteText



Many elements are made up of noteText including adminNote, descrip, descripNote, note, P and termNote. Note text is used in definitions and contextual examples and similar elements, contains the following seven embedded elements hi, foreign, bpt, ept, it, ph, and ut. A hi element highlights a segment of text and optionally points to another element. One use of hi is to mark an entailed term inside a definition.hi has two valid types, entailedTerm and xlink.

The foreign element is used to mark a segment of text that is in a different language from the surrounding text, e.g. "a pamplemousse is a grapefruit."

The five elements, bpt, ept, it, ph, and ut, are meta-markup tags that are used to mark up, i.e., encapsulate markup to distinguish it from text. They allow DXLT elements to contain various kinds of markup that needs to be retained but not necessarily processed during terminology management functions. Any such enclosed markup is modified so that start-tag characters ('<') become character entities (&lt;). If a piece of markup to be encapsulated consists of two paired pieces of markup, such as the markup used to show that a piece of text is to be in bold or italics, then bpt and ept (begin and end paired tags) are used. If the markup to be encapsulated consists of one piece that would be paired except that the other piece was cut off and appears outside the current element, then it (isolated tag) is used. If the piece of markup to be encapsulated stands on its own, marking a place such as a footnote, then ph (placeholder) is used. If the categorization of the piece of markup is unknown, then ut (unknown tag) is used.
