Remarks

Best Practice: Notes such as superseding notes, adoption notes, and errata information notes are typically tagged as <meta-note>s. The @content-type element to distinguish note types; see @content-type page for a list of suggested values of meta-note types.
ASME Note: ASME cover blurbs should be tagged as <meta-note>s, using the @content-type element to distinguish note types.
