Additional material added to a document that typically follows the body of the document. This is ancillary or supporting material, not a direct continuation of the text of the document.


Usage: A typical appendix might be a table (or set of tables), maps, notes, etc. appended to the base document.

An appendix must have some sort of title, so that, for example, a Table of Contents can be automatically generated. Therefore, this Tag Set requires that an appendix be tagged with (minimally) either a <title> or a <label>. An appendix may be tagged with both.
