Parameter Entities


TitleAbbrev holds an abbreviated version of a Title. One common use of TitleAbbrev is for the text used in running headers or footers, when the proper title is too long to be used conveniently.

Processing expectations

May be formatted inline or as a displayed block, depending on context. Abbreviated titles are usually used only in specific contexts, such as headers and footers, and suppressed everywhere else.

Future Changes

The InterfaceDefinition element will be discarded in DocBook V4.0. It will no longer be available in the content model of this element.
