Element example
ISO Logo

The example element illustrates a concept or a term, by providing an example of the object designated by the concept or term.

An example can contain a term which is defined elsewhere in the standard. Such terms are called "entailed terms" and they must be enclosed in the entailedTerm element so that a link will be generated to point to the location where the definition of that term can be found. An example can also contain lists, tables, other special markup, and certain symbols (those that can be expressed in a markup language such as MathML or via characters accessible from the keyboard).

Examples are only allowed at the langSet level.

An entry can contain multiple examples.
