The <text> element associates no semantics with its content. It exists to serve as a container for text where a container is needed (for example, as a target for content references, or for use within restricted content models in specializations).

Unlike <ph>, <text> cannot contain images. Unlike <keyword>, <text> does not imply keyword-like semantics. The <text> element contains only text data, or nested <text> elements.
