Named Special (Subject) Content


A word or phrase within the text that should be treated differently (for example, given a special typographic style or look) because the content/subject matter of the phrase has content-related significance.


The content-type attribute can be used to identify the subject or type of content that makes this word or phrase semantically special, and therefore to be treated differently. For example, this attribute could be used to identify a drug name, company name, or product name. It could be used to define systematics terms such as genus, family, order, or suborder. It could also be used to identify biological components such as gene, protein, or peptide. It could be used to name body system such as circulatory or skeletal. Therefore, values may include information classes, semantic categories, or types of nouns, such as “generic-drug-name”, “genus-species”, “gene”, “peptide”, “product”, etc.
