<tbx:example> Example (TBX)

The <tbx:example> element illustrates a concept or a term, by providing an example of the object designated by the concept or term.


A <tbx:example> element can contain lists, tables, other special markup, and certain symbols (those that can be expressed in a markup language such as MathML or via characters accessible from the keyboard).
A <tbx:example> can also contain a term which is defined elsewhere in the standard or in an external document. Such terms are called “entailed terms” and they must be enclosed in the <tbx:entailedTerm> element so that a link can be generated to point to the location where the definition of that term can be found.
