ITermSet -- A set of index terms in the meta-information of a document


Content Model

ITermSet ::=


Common attributes

Tag Minimization

Both the start- and end-tags are required for this element.


When IndexTerms use the Zone attribute to point to index ranges, it may be handy to hoist them out of the flow and put them in the document meta-information.

The ITermSet element, which occurs in the DocBook containers for meta-information, is one place to put them. ITermSet is simply a wrapper around a group of IndexTerms.

Processing expectations


Although more than one ITermSet may appear in the meta-information for a document, neither a relationship nor a specific facility for constructing a relationship is defined.


The following elements occur in ITermSet: IndexTerm.

In some contexts, the following elements are allowed anywhere: BeginPage, IndexTerm.

In some contexts, the following elements are excluded: IndexTerm.


For examples, see Chapter.
