MsgRel -- A related component of a message in a message set


Content Model

MsgRel ::=


Common attributes

Tag Minimization

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


Every Msg has one primary message (MsgMain). It may also have any number of related messages, stored in MsgRel elements within the same Msg.

Related messages are usually messages that appear elsewhere in response to the same event (or set of events) that triggered the main message. For example, if a network client produces a failure or warning message, a related message might appear on the server console.

Processing expectations

May be formatted inline or as a displayed block, depending on context. Sometimes suppressed.

On the whole, the semantics of MsgSet are not clearly defined.


These elements contain MsgRel: Msg.


The following elements occur in MsgRel: MsgText, Title.

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


For examples, see MsgSet.
