Attribute synopsis

Common attributes.

Description

A primaryie identifies the most significant word or words in an indexentry. The indexentrys occur in an index, not in the flow of the text. They are part of a formatted index, not markers for indexing.

If a document includes both indexterms and indexentrys, the indexentrys are usually constructed from the indexterms by some external process.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block. The primaryie starts a new entry in the index.
