keywordset

keywordset — A set of keywords describing the content of a document.

Synopsis

keywordset ::=

Description

A set of keywords, provided by the author, editor, publisher, and so on, can be stored in the document meta-information in a keywordset.

Keywords can form an important part of an automated indexing or searching strategy for a collection of documents.

Processing expectations

May be formatted inline or as a displayed block, depending on context. Keywords are rarely displayed to a reader. Usually, they are reserved for searching and retrieval purposes.

Unlike subjectterms, which should be drawn from a controlled vocabulary, keywords may be chosen freely.

Although more than one keywordset may appear in the meta-information for a document, neither a relationship nor a specific facility for constructing a relationship is defined by DocBook.

Additionally, no relationship is defined between the keywordsets of a document component and the keywordsets of its parents or children.

Parents

These elements contain keywordset: biblioentry, bibliomixed, bibliomset, biblioset, info (db.info), info (db.titleforbidden.info), info (db.titleonly.info), info (db.titleonlyreq.info), info (db.titlereq.info).

Children

The following elements occur in keywordset: keyword.
