The text element associates no semantics with its content. It exists to serve as a container for text where a container is needed (e.g., for conref, or for restricted content models in specializations). Unlike ph, text cannot contain images. Unlike keyword, text does not imply keyword-like semantics. The text element contains only text data, or nested text elements. All universal attributes are available on text.
These models represent only the default document types distributed by OASIS. Actual content models will differ with each new document type.
