Count Type

Names what is being counted by the <count> element, for example, images, contributors, algorithms, etc.


This attribute may describe countable objects (for example, images, lemmas, or algorithms) for which there is no specifically named counting element. Alternatively, this attribute may be used with the <count> element set and a value such as “figure”, replacing a named counter such as <fig-count>.
