The repsep element provides a repeat separator character within a syntax diagram to indicate that a group of syntax elements can (or should) be repeated. If the repsep element contains a separator character such as a plus (+), this indicates that the character must be used between repetitions of the syntax elements. This element is part of the DITA programming domain, a special set of DITA elements designed to document programming tasks, concepts, and reference information.
