<term-display-string> Term-display String

Container element for narrative material to appear inside <term-display> but outside, or between, the element content of <term-display>.


The element <term-display> is a container element for other elements such as <part-of-speech> and <pronunciation>. When there is text for <term-display> that does not fit into one of the included elements, <term-display-string>, should be used to hold that text.
A <term-display-string> element is a bucket of text, in which other Term Display elements (such as Part of Speech) can be embedded. The idea is to use <term-display-string> to hold additional editorial text or other content that might have been generated, but has been placed explicitly in the XML instead. This allows a way to use, but constrain, text placed inside a <term-display> element.
