Word, phrase, graphic, chemical structure, equation, or other noun that is being defined or described.
This element is typically used in conjunction with a definition in a definition list (two-part list). The term occupies the first column of the two-part list and is the subject of the definition or description, which occupies the second column.
The <def-list> element should not be used to tag the formal terms and definitions provided in section 3 of many International Standards, or corresponding terms and definitions clauses in other documents. Such terms and definitions sections should be marked up using <term-sec> and the individual definitions should normally be marked up using <tbx:termEntry>.
