This element is used to add a single line of text to the parent element. Content elements can only be nested within other elements and cannot be used at the top level of the form hierarchy.


The element declaration begins with ?content= statement followed by a text to be displayed. This statement must be placed on a separate line.


The content element can be customized by adding optional attributes to it.

An attribute is written as [attribute_name]=[value]. Each attribute must be placed on a new line immediately after the opening ?content= statement or another attribute, and must begin with a tab character.
