Example 1

    <sec sec-type="scope">
      <p>This International Standard specifies terms and definitions 
        used for clamping technology, including specific technical 
        terms commonly used for work holding chucks.</p>
        <label>NOTE 1</label>
        <p>In addition to the terms used in the two official 
        ISO languages (English and French), this International Standard 
        also gives the equivalent terms in German. These terms are 
        published under the responsibility of the member body for 
        Germany (DIN), and are given for information only. Only the 
        terms and definitions given in the official languages can 
        be considered as ISO terms and definitions.</p>
        <label>NOTE 2</label>
        <p>The figures in this International Standard are given 
        as examples only. They are not intended to influence the 
        manufacturer's design.</p>


Example 2

        <title>meta data-category</title>
        <p>name used to group similar <bold>data-categories</bold> (3.6) together;
          thus, a category of <bold>data-categories</bold> (3.6)</p>
          <p>A meta data-category is equivalent to a typed element
            in ISO 16642. A meta data-category is instantiated into a
            terminological data-category through the value of its
            <italic>type</italic> attribute.</p>
            <p>In the tag &lt;descrip type="definition">, the meta data-category
              is <italic>descrip</italic> and the terminological
              data-category is /definition/.</p></non-normative-example>
