public abstract class TextSyntax
extends Object
implements Serializable, Cloneable

Class TextSyntax is an abstract base class providing the common implementation of all attributes whose value is a string. The text attribute includes a locale to indicate the natural language. Thus, a text attribute always represents a localized string. Once constructed, a text attribute's value is immutable.
