Used in an embedded index entry to hold preferred terms that make “See Also” references in a generated index.


Best Practice:The primary (useful) content of a <see-also> element is one or more <index-term> elements to which the user is being directed. Thus a typical embedded See Also reference would contain only an <index-term>, with words such as “See Also” (or similar) generated by a display application. Many other elements are allowed within a <see-also> element for those rare cases where additional narrative explanation of the index-term is provided.
