Conversion Note: This element should be used when the value of the article-type attribute on the element <article> is “book-review” or “product-review”.

Conversion Note: A review of a book, journal, website, etc., should include as much information about the item being reviewed as is practical; for example, the running time of a film or the number of pages in a book (both of which would be tagged as <size>).
