The text element associates no semantics with its content. It exists to serve as a container for text where a container is needed (for example, as a target for content references, or for use within restricted content models in specializations).

Unlike ph, text cannot contain images. Unlike keyword, text does not imply keyword-like semantics. The text element contains only text data, or nested text elements.

Content models

See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
