Textual material that is part of the body but is outside the flow of the narrative text (for example, a sidebar).
Usage: The <boxed-text> element can be used for any text insert whether enclosed in a box or not (for example, marginalia, sidebars, cautions, tips, warnings, note boxes).
Historical Note: This element (<boxed-text>) was significantly remodeled for NLM 3.0. The current NISO JATS values are backwards compatible with NLM 3.0 but not with earlier versions. Specifically, in prior versions the <boxed-text> element could contain the <title> element directly, but now it can contain only the element <caption>, which contains the <title>.
