description

A description of the symbol intended for maintenance and usage guidelines, rather than for actual character rendering. (Note that the information in this attribute is taken from various sources and so can be variable.)

glyph

Contains details of the representation of the entity. Where the value of glyph is preceded by '@' e.g. @frac12 the entity should be rendered as an entity (&frac12;). Elsewhere, the entity will be rendered as an image (glyph='Ascr_uc.gif'). For those entities, the value of the attribute is the name of the image file.
