Inside <mask> information about a mask used is put into brackets. Several <mask> elements can be given (for the sake of readability one after the other).
In case a <manufacturer>'s data are defined before in the UDDF file it is possible to set a cross-reference via <link/> to these data inside every section of a piece of equipment. Then the <manufacturer>'s data need to be given only once (globally) but can be used as often as necessary.
(see also <equipment>)
