sgmltag — A component of SGML markup
sgmltag ::= (#PCDATA|replaceable|inlinegraphic|inlinemediaobject|indexterm| beginpage)*
An SGMLTag identifies an SGML markup construct. The utility of this element is almost wholly constrained to books about SGML.
SGMLTag is sufficient for most XML constructs, which are identical to the corresponding SGML constructs, it but does not have any provisions for handling the special features of XML markup. A future version of DocBook will address this issue, probably by adding new Class values. In the meantime, you may get by by assigning a Role attribute for XML.
Formatted inline. SGMLTag generates all the necessary punctuation before and after the construct it identifies. For example, it generates both the leading ampersand and the trailing semicolon when the Class is genentity.
These elements contain sgmltag: action, application, attribution, bibliomisc, bridgehead, citation, citetitle, classsynopsisinfo, command, computeroutput, database, emphasis, entry, filename, foreignphrase, funcparams, funcsynopsisinfo, function, glosssee, glossseealso, glossterm, hardware, interfacename, keycap, lineannotation, link, literal, literallayout, lotentry, member, msgaud, olink, option, optional, para, parameter, phrase, primary, primaryie, productname, programlisting, property, quote, refdescriptor, refentrytitle, refname, refpurpose, remark, screen, screeninfo, secondary, secondaryie, see, seealso, seealsoie, seeie, seg, segtitle, simpara, subtitle, synopsis, systemitem, term, tertiary, tertiaryie, title, titleabbrev, tocback, tocentry, tocfront, trademark, ulink, userinput.
