<boxed-text> Boxed Text

Textual material that is part of the body but is outside the flow of the narrative text (for example, a sidebar).


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).
Related Elements
A footnote <fn> usually contains material that cannot stand alone; it must be related to a word, phrase, or paragraph already in the basic material. Supplementary text that stands on its own or that is related to but not directly tied to material in the text, can be tagged using the <boxed-text> element.
