Phrase element

A phrase element is used to describe words or phrases within a block or structure element.

Phrases include semantic elements used inline to mark items like user interface controls, keywords, index terms, and cross references. Phrases also include domain elements (associated with a particular subject area) and typographic elements (tags to mark words or phrases to be displayed in italic, bold, underscore, and so forth).
