Content labels

Content labels are a class of label used to describe information inside PageSeeder documents. The two types of content labels: block label and inline label are analogous to the idea of paragraph and character styles in publishing or word processing systems, or to the HTML elements of <div> and <span>.

Content labels become visible to the user while editing. When PageSeeder documents are published, the labels are automatically translated for output as styles in PDF and DOCX or <div> and <span> elements in HTML.

When saved as XML, content labels are expressed as:

<block label="XXXX">content</block> 
<inline label="XXXX">content</inline>

where XXXX is the name of the label.

Inline labels are also automatically indexed and can be selected through the search facets.

The other class of PageSeeder labels are object labels, that are attached to PageSeeder artifacts such as documents, sections, comments, tasks or cross-references.
