Label (Of a Figure, Reference, Etc.)


The number and any prefix word associated with, for example, the title or the caption of a Figure, such as “Figure 3.” or “Exhibit 2.”.


This element can also be used to preserve the prefix number or label of a bibliographic reference or citation “25.” or “[Lapeyre 2002]” (inside <citation>). This can be useful when reconstructing untagged cross references.
