Description

A tag identifies an XML or SGML markup construct. The utility of this element is almost wholly constrained to books about markup.

Processing expectations

Formatted inline.

A tag generates all the necessary punctuation before and after the construct it identifies. For example, it generates both the leading ampersand and the trailing semicolon when the class is genentity.
