Attributes

Name Description Data Type Default Value Required?
translate Indicates whether the content of the element should be translated or not. Setting to "yes" will override the default. The DITA architectural specification contains a list of each OASIS DITA element and its common processing default for the translate value; because this element uses an actual default, it will always be treated as translate="no" unless overridden as described. yes | no | -dita-use-​conref-​target "no" No
xml:lang Specifies the language of the element content. The xml:lang attribute and its values are described in the XML Recommendation at http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-xml/#sec-lang-tag. language token or the null string #IMPLIED No

The value lro indicates an override of normal bidi text presentation, forcing the element into left-to-right mode; rlo overrides normal rules to force right-to-left presentation. See The dir attribute for more information on the dir attribute. (ltr | rtl | lro | rlo | -dita-use-​conref-​target) #IMPLIED No
