The elements in TBX-ISO-TML that can contain text can be formatted in various ways to support presentational styles such as bold, italics, and superscript. The level of formatting allowed is defined in the two entities: basicText and simpleText. The actual types of formatting allowed are defined in the entity highlight-elements.

Some elements allow no formatting at all.
