Language reference : Technical content architecture : Concept elements : conbody
The <conbody> element is the main body-level element for a concept.
Like the <body> element of a general <topic>, <conbody> allows paragraphs, lists, and other elements as well as sections and examples. However, <conbody> has a constraint that a section or an example can be followed only by other sections, examples, or <conbodydiv> elements that group sections and examples.
Note: These models represent only the default document types distributed by OASIS. Actual content models will differ with each new document type.

Data Type
Default Value
A generic attribute that has no specific purpose. It is intended to act as a base for specialized attributes that have a simple value syntax like the conditional processing attributes (one or more alphanumeric values separated by whitespace), but is not itself a filtering or flagging attribute. The attribute takes a space-delimited set of values. However, when acting as a container for generalized attributes, the content model will be more complex; see Attribute generalization for more details.
