<glossScopeNote> element contains a clarification of the
subject that is designated by the
<glossterm>, such as examples of
included or excluded companies or products. For instance, a scope note for "Linux" might explain
that the term doe not apply to UNIX products; it might give examples of Linux products that are
included as well as UNIX products that are excluded.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.

- Defines the type of a note. For example, if the
note is a tip, the word Tip
might be used to
draw the reader's attention to it. Note that this differs from the
@typeattribute on many other DITA elements. See The type attribute for detailed information on supported values and processing implications. Available values are note, tip, fastpath, restriction, important, remember, attention, caution, notice, danger, warning, trouble, other, and -dita-use-conref-target .
- Indicates an alternate note type, when the type
is not available in the
@typeattribute value list. This value is used as the user-provided note title when the
@typeattribute value is set to "other".
