lineannotation — A comment on a line in a verbatim listing


Content Model

lineannotation ::=


A LineAnnotation is an author or editor's comment on a line in one of the verbatim environments. These are annotations added by the documentor, not part of the original listing.

Processing expectations

Formatted inline. In verbatim environments like ProgramListing, which are often presented in a fixed width font, they may get special typographic treatment, such as italics.

If several lineannotations occur in the same listing, they may be aligned horizontally.


The following elements occur in lineannotation: text, alt, anchor, annotation, biblioref, indexterm (db.indexterm.endofrange), indexterm (db.indexterm.singular), indexterm (db.indexterm.startofrange), inlinemediaobject, link, olink, phrase (db._phrase), remark, replaceable, subscript, superscript, xref.
