Unlike all other attribute types, containers do not represent data values. Rather their sole function is to organize attributes into groups for display. In a multi-attribute value set (for example an address with separate attributes for street number, city, state, country and postal code), there will be at least one container serving as the "root" (or top) of the attribute hierarchy. Other containers may serve to further group items in the multi-attribute set into sub-groups displayed on separate lines of a form.
