item (alias)

The adornment tag is used to contain a single adornment object:

<item ID="3444054848" Creator="">[current item attribute tags]</item> 

The item tag has two attributes:


<adornment ID="3444054848" Creator="" >...</adornment> 

Unlike items or agent tags, aliases never nest other outline objects within themselves. Aliases use, but don't store, their original's prototype.

Aliases use one special (internal, hidden) attribute: Alias. An alias will always include these in its default listing, over and above normal item attributes:

<attribute name="Alias" >3444070141</attribute> 

<attribute name="Name" ></attribute> 

The 'alias' value is the $ID of the original of the alias. The $Name is left blank as this is intrinsic - instead the alias inherits the original's name.

See the item tag description for the general range of attributes used.

Attributes, other than the defaults listed below are only written to file if they hold locally set values, which in the case of aliases will only ever be intrinsic attributes. For an alias item, the following default (intrinsic) attributes are always stored:
