Use the <parameterentity> element to identify mentions of parameter entities, for example, "%keyword.content;". This element enables more precise semantic searching of the DITA source; it also enables distinct formatting, such as adding the percentage sign (%) or trailing semi-colon (;) delimiters to the parameter entity name. The content of the <parameterentity> element should be the entity name without the leading percentage sign or trailing semi-colon. This element is part of the XML mention domain.
