Documentation The generic description type is used to describe any individual in the XMCDA instance. The optional title, subTitle and subSubTitle elements, if present, must preceed all other elements as they are used by the default XSL transformation to HTML (xmcdaDefault.xsl) with the corresponding h1, h2 and h3 tags. The names of the elements suggest their standard use. In the default html transformation these description elements appear in the order of the instance with tagName and value.
