Purpose #

The s.ui.menu-cascade.control annotation is used to tag a span element as being the stages of a menu in a user interface. This is used to indicate a menu path for a user to follow during a task (e.g. File > New, Format > Paragraph > Indentation).

Note: In this example, the relevant span is “FILE > NEW”.


The following is an example of a rule that will apply the annotation
