A number appearing in running prose.
This element is provided to allow numbers to be tagged so that the decimal separators and group separators appearing in them can be identified explicitly; this is helpful when the document is to be rendered in a style which may require different decimal or group separators
It is not, however, required that all numbers appearing in the document be tagged in this way. In some environments, the choice of decimal and group separators is fixed for all documents; in others, there is no requirement that the separators be changed. Even in environments where the element is used, numerals which are rendered without either a decimal or a group separator may typically remain untagged.
This element is part of the ISOSTS customization of the JATS journal publishing vocabulary; it is not part of the base vocabulary.
