delimiter string


A declaration that specifies how tokens in a list-valued attribute are separated when output by the "%v" format. The declaration applies to all list-valued attributes: those whose declared type is one of names, numbers, nmtokens, idrefs, or entities.

It specifies that the given quoted string appear between every pair of tokens when such a value is output. There cannot be more than one delimiter token in an OmniMark program. If there is no delimiter declaration, the tokens are separated by a single space.

delimiter does not provide as much control or specificity as the repeat scan and repeat over compound actions do.
