Using the <meaning> tag

Description

The meaning tag is used to give the meaning of the term being defined in a definition tag. Each term can have multiple definitions and therefore multiple meaning tags.

Example

This CNXML:


<definition id='quardef'>
  <term>quarter</term>
  <meaning id="meaning-part">
    One fourth of something.
  </meaning>
  <example id='defex1'>
    <para id='parex1'>
      "He cut the pie into quarters and 
      gave all four people a piece."
    </para>
  </example>
  <meaning id="meaning-money">
    25 cents, a quarter of a dollar.
  </meaning>
  <seealso>
    <term>dollar</term>
    <term>penny</term>
