The <coderef> element references an external file that contains literal code. When evaluated, the <coderef> element should cause the target code to be displayed inline. If the target contains non-XML characters such as '<' or '&', those will need to be handled in a way that they may be displayed correctly by the final rendering engine. This element is part of the DITA programming domain, a special set of DITA elements designed to document programming tasks, concepts, and reference information.
These models represent only the default document types distributed by OASIS. Actual content models will differ with each new document type.
