Snippets (text quotes and extracts from authoritative sources)
A Snippet is a short quote or extract (typically a phrase, a sentence, or at most a few sentences) from an authoritative source document such as a specification, technical manual, or design manual.

The Snippet and Note concepts are very closely related and they support each other.
The Snippet concept is also at the heart of the Parsing Analysis recipe for UML® and SysML®
