Entailed Term

The <tbx:entailedTerm> element encloses a term that is defined elsewhere in the same document (internal ID reference) or in another document (external reference). Such terms are found in the content of text elements such as <tbx:definition> and <tbx:example>.


To make a link to the term entry that is defined elsewhere:
  • Point to an entry in the same document by using the attribute @target to hold the ID of the term entry;
  • Point to an entry in another document by using the attribute @xtarget to hold a pointer to that document and entry.
