segtitle — The title of an element of a list item in a segmented list.


segtitle ::= [-]


Each heading in a segmentedlist is contained in its own segtitle.

The relationship between segtitles and segs is implicit in the document; the first segtitle goes with the first seg in each seglistitem, the second segtitle goes with the second seg, and so on.

Processing expectations

Segmented lists can be formatted in a number of ways. Two popular formats are tabular and as a list of repeated headings and elements. In a tabular presentation, each segtitle is a column heading. In the list presentation, each segtitle is repeated before the corresponding seg.


These elements contain segtitle: segmentedlist.
