<foreign> element allows the introduction of non-DITA content,
for example, MathML, SVG, or Rich Text Format (RTF). The
element or a specialization can contain more than one type of
non-DITA content or a mix of DITA and non-DITA content. Specialization of the
<foreign> element generally is implemented as a domain, but architects
looking for more control over the content can implement foreign
vocabularies as structural specializations.
Processors should attempt to display
<foreign> content unless
otherwise instructed. If the processor cannot render the content, it MAY issue a warning.
The enabler of the foreign vocabulary must provide the processing and override the base
<foreign>contains more than one alternative content element, they should all be processed. In the case of
<desc>they should be concatenated in a similar way to
<section>, but with no title (analogous to
<desc>element to contain it. This specialization of
<desc>should be used within the element specialized from
<foreign>. Such alternate content must of course be valid wherever the
<foreign>specialization is valid.
<image>element is found within an instance of the
<foreign>element, the base processing can emit a warning about the absence of processable content.
<object>might emit the content of
<foreign>as a file at the location specified by the
@dataattribute of the
<object>element should have a data attribute or a
<foreign>sub-element but not both. In the event that an
<object>element contains both a data attribute and an
<foreign>sub-element the processing system should ignore one of them.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
