Term Type Flag

The <tbx:termType> element identifies a term as being of a specific sub-type such as an “acronym” or a “symbol”. Each term can have only one term type.


Content: The <tbx:termType> is an empty element, with the required @value attribute holding the specific type, for example:
<tbx:termType value="acronym"/>
Usage: The <tbx:termType> element is recommended when you have several terms (synonyms) in the term entry. For example, one term might be an abbreviation and another a variant of the main term. Note: If the term entry only contains one term, it is not necessary or useful to use the <tbx:termType> element.
Display: The term type has no specific rendering or labeling in the published standard. It is typically used for filtering and extraction purposes, for example to publish a reference describing acronyms or symbols.
